How To Make An Italian Orzo Pasta Mason Jar Salad

How To Make An Italian Orzo Pasta Mason Jar Salad.  Are you having a lovely Bank Holiday Monday?

It’s a bit of a wash out here with a few downpours of rain!

We are not up to much also we had nothing planned today after a really busy weekend. So just really catching up on jobs inside the home and chilling.

Also drying off again after 2 walks with Mollie The Collie. This morning me, the two youngest children were all soaked to the bone with how much rain fell.

Thankfully we did not get caught out in the Thunder and Lightning as we did on Saturday morning before we went to the coast.

I love to make up salads in Mason Jar and save them in the fridge until lunch time. Always something healthy ready made up to snack on too.

Today I have an Italian Orzo Pasta Mason Jar Salad recipe to share with you. This is just what I need after lots of junk food over the weekend too.
