This salad is fresh, bright, crisp, colorful, and screams 'eat me' as soon as you lay your eyes on it. Not the kind of delicious that you can smell - cinnamon and yeast baking, caramelized onions frying.
I recommend serving this salad cold with a glass of Pinot Grigio on the side. In the winter, I foresee this dish warm with soft melted cheese and a glass of Pinot Noir. Orzo and kale pesto salad would make an excellent side dish for a weekend barbecue. Make this dish a couple of days in advance and enjoy it for lunch meals, or a quick snack while on the go.
