Orzo Salad with Spinach and Kielbasa

I love a nice blend of my childhood flavors, such as kalamata with feta and olive oil.  Add orzo, spinach, kielbasa and dried cranberries and this becomes such a delight.  This is a family favorite for us.  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
For salad:
-1 cup orzo
-1 lb kielbasa
-5 oz baby spinach
-2 oz dried cranberries
-1 cucumber, peeled and sliced
-1/2 cup kalamata olive, pitted and quartered
-4 oz crumbled feta cheese
For dressing:
-1 clove garlic, minced
-1/4 tsp dried oregano leaves
-1/4 tsp dried thyme
-1/2 tsp sugar
-1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
-1/4 cup vegetable oil
-1/4 cup red wine vinegar
Directions:
Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain, rinse in cold water until cool.  Drain again.  Add to salad bowl.
Meanwhile, slice the kielbasa in half lengthwise. Slice each half and cook until golden brown.  Remove from heat and let it cool.
Mix all salad ingredients into salad bowl and give it a good stir.
Place all dressing ingredients in jar with lid or plastic container with lid.  Shake very well then pour over salad.  Mix well, scoop into bowls and enjoy!  YUM!
