- Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add orzo and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain.
- Toss warm orzo in olive oil, honey, vinegar, lemon pepper and lemon zest and juice. This allows these ingredients to infuse the orzo.
- Add remaining ingredients to orzo and combine well.
- Toss and chill for 1 hour in refrigerator.
- Serve with crusty bread.
