A classic and insanely easy little dish to whip up, this salad hits all of the right notes when it comes to the Mediterranean flavor profile -- olives, feta, cucumbers -- aka, the works. Since the only cooking needed for this recipe is boiling the orzo, it's pretty hard to go wrong. The rest of it is really all about proportions. Taste as you go to get the ratio to your liking, and you're almost guaranteed to have a totally crowd pleasing dish ready to dig into.
