1 organic tomato
cook the orzo in boiling water for about 15 minutes or until tender. when done, rinse with cold water and set aside. saute the squashes and peas with the olive oil and garlic for about 5 minutes. chop the tomato.
for the dressing, you'll need:
2 T. organic extra virgin olive oil
1 T. organic seasoned rice vinegar
1 T. organic mustard
1 t. organic fair-trade sugar
