    very nice and light. I wasn't going to tweak this recipe but felt there wasn't enough cucumber to match the orzo pasta, so I added a 1/4 more then suggested in the recipe. As well as using a seasoned Feta cheese because it's what I had on hand. If I could change one thing in this recipe the next time, it would be to reduce the lemon juice by half. It was a little more acidic then I would have preferred but it was still a very good recipe. - 24 Feb 2015
