Strawberry Spinach Orzo Salad

A trip to the Farmers' Market + beautiful summer produce = the makings of a delicious salad!

I love just walking around the market ~ the smells, the music, and the fresh colors! And Saturday was no exception! 

My favorites this week:  baby spinach and big red strawberries!
