Prepare Vinaigrette. In a small mixing bowl, whisk all ingredients except olive oil until combined. While whisking constantly, slowly stream the olive oil until fully incorporated and emulsified. Set aside. For best results, make one day ahead for flavors to meld. Yields just under 8 ounces.

Prepare Orzo. Cook orzo according to package instructions. Fully drain any excess water. Transfer orzo to a large mixing bowl. Yields approximately 4 cups cooked orzo.

Assemble Salad. To the orzo, add the remaining ingredients and enough vinaigrette to coat; toss gently to combine. Taste; add more vinaigrette as desired
