Spinach and Orzo Salad
YUM! I've made this twice now, and omitted the feta (by accident) the second time. I didn't miss it at all, so maybe those looking to save a few calories could omit it? With or without it, it's a super fast, tasty salad, perfect for a light addition to a summer dinner, or maybe as an entree with some chicken or tuna added. It's so yummy, I could eat half the salad out of the bowl, tho it is better after it sits a while. This is a definite keeper. Thanks again, AR community, for the recipe and helpful reviews.

Thai Cucumber Salad
I really wanted to like this, but I found it came out just tasting sweet. I was shocked at how the vegetables lost all flavor and heat. All I could taste was the sugar. Sorry. I won't be making this again.

Sugar Snap Peas
I made this as written, except I also had to sub in dried thyme for fresh. I don't know if I added too much or what, because the thyme flavor was overpowering, and far too "woodsy" tasting for us (tho we were able to eat it, it wasn't too pleasant). Perhaps it's too close to Rosemary, which neither of us can abide. I guess we've tolerated it before because I've generally used it in tomato sauces and such, but when I try this dish again (which I'm sure I will), I think I'll add half the amount of herbs, and sub Italian seasoning for the thyme, or maybe I'll just add garlic. It's hard to beat a good roasted spring vegetable with EVOO, salt and pepper.
