Vegan Orzo Pasta Salad – Low Fat & Fresh Herbs

Vegan Orzo Pasta Salad - Low Fat & Fresh Herbs - Rich Bitch Cooking Blog

Fresh herbs are always a gift from the gods. I need more fresh herbs in my life. I went light on the low fat balsamic dressing because I made the mistake of buying whole foods brand. They use apple cider vinegar in almost all of their shit. I forgot for the millionth time. I seriously do this all of the time. I opened the bottle, smelled it and was like NOOOOOOOOOOO. Since then I’ve been enjoying it in small doses on different dishes but what I’m really getting at is that I would have used more dressing on this dish had it been a different brand of balsamic dressing.  There’s no exact measurements with this so just taste as you go. More chopped herbs is always a good thing.
