Serves: 4 to 6 servings
  1. Cook the orzo according to the package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water. Pour into a large serving dish or storage container.
  2. Whisk the mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, curry, garlic, coriander, cardamom, salt, and cayenne in a medium bowl until smooth.
  3. Fold the dressing into the cooled orzo. Add the Tofurky, cranberries, celery, onion and parsley. Stir gently until combined well.
  4. This orzo salad can be made up to a day ahead of time and actually benefits from some time spent in the refrigerator. If making the salad ahead of time, be sure to toss it gently before serving. Add salt to taste.
Most mayonnaise is dairy-free. To veganize this recipe, simply use one of the great vegan mayonnaise alternatives on the market, such as Nasoya or Vegenaise.
