Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook orzo in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 10 to 11 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water.
  2. Mix orzo, spinach, chicken, tomatoes, pine nuts, sun-dried tomatoes, and capers in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk balsamic vinegar, olive oil, sugar, parsley, basil, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; drizzle over salad. Toss to coat. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over salad.

I used arugula rather than spinach (I had everything else on hand), and that was the only major change I made. The olive oil I used was lemon olive oil, and I used leftover beer butt chicken rather than grilled. I toasted the pine nuts (put them in a pan on stovetop in low heat until barely browned). We thought this was delicious. The only thing I would worry about would be that there wasn't enough of that wonderful dressing. I'm not sure because I made such a small batch and we didn't even eat all of that, but I would want a little more dressing than it called for, so maybe a recipe and a half of that? It'd be good on any other salad, so that would work for me! Thanks for a great salad, EMILIEWASMYEVE!

Made as written except I didn't add the pine nuts. The dressing is very good, although I was the only one who used it. The rest of the gang ate this without.
