    What is a good side dish to bring to a banquet?

    It's better if it doesn't need to be warm, because the drive to the banquet is an hour and a half. It can be dessert or not. Nothing to expensive or fancy, it is going w/ hot dogs and sloppy Joe's and hamburgers, so it is sort of Like a barbecue, but I'm only 16, and I don't know what to bring. It is for my end of the year team banquet, and I have to make it myself because my mom isn't home to help me on the weekend, so what are some ideas for me?

    Orzo salad

    You can also add other blanched vegetables and cubed cooked chicken to this dish.


    Sesame dressing:

    1 teaspoon salt
    3/4 cup corn oil
    1/4 cup dark [toasted] sesame oil
    1/2 cup rice vinegar or cider vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon orange zest, grated
    1 teaspoon soy sauce
    2 teaspoons scallions, thinly sliced
    1 teaspoon fresh peeled ginger, minced
    1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
    1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    1 teaspoon pepper
    1 tablespoon sugar
    2 tablespoons fresh cilantro or parsley, minced


    1 pound uncooked orzo
    1 tablespoon dark [toasted] sesame oil
    3 cups carrots, shredded
    2 cups raisins
    1 cup pine nuts, lightly toasted


    Combine all the dressing ingredients by hand or in a food processor and set aside.

    Cook orzo in rapidly boiling salted water until tender, 7 to 10 minutes or according to the package instructions. Refresh under cold water; drain well and let rest to finish draining, about 2 to 3 minutes. Toss with sesame oil. Cool completely. Combine the pasta with the carrots, raisins, pine nuts,
    and dressing. If you're making it in advance, add the carrots and pine nuts just before serving to keep them crunchy.

    Serve at room temperature.

    This salad keeps for several days in the refrigerator, which is good, because it makes a lot.
