  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 ra...

This was the perfect recipe to use up a few things in the fridge. I used more pasta and less spinach, left out the chicken and made only half the dressing. Very Good.

Wow, a delicious salad! I thought the amount of balsamic vinegar would make the dressing too strong, but I added it to taste and the favors were just right. I ate this for 3 days straight!

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.
