  3. Whisk together balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, garlic, sugar, basil, canola oil, olive oil, salt, and ground black pepper to taste. Drizzle over orzo salad and toss to coat.

I thought this was yummy! I did add bacon bits, which I thought added a little extra flavor. I did use a champagne mustard instead of dijon, and cranberry pear infused white balsamic vinegar.....only because that's what I happened to have on hand. I will definitely make this again!
