Ripe cherry red and yellow tomatoes were calling my name at the fresh market so of course I had to purchase them.  While thinking about how to use these sweet fruits I thought about feta cheese, olives, and red onions with a little bit of drizzled olive oil.  But what kind of olive oil?  Hum… I had blood orange olive oil  at home in my pantry. (I decorate a window for Bristol Olive oil company and of course I have to have several olive oils and balsamic vinegar in my pantry).  Love them all!  I haven’t found one flavor or vinegar I have not liked.

Blood orange olive oil with a little bit of lemon juice, garlic powder and tiny bit of sugar made the perfect dressing for this orzo tomato salad.  Here ‘s how to make it.
