Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.
Add orzo, and cook until al dente, about 9 minutes, stirring occasionally. Use a fine-mesh strainer to drain pasta well. Transfer pasta to a large mixing bowl.
While pasta is still hot, add olive oil, vinegar, lemon zest, and lemon juice and stir to combine. Let pasta cool for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add olives, tomatoes, red onion, capers, and parsley, and stir to combine.
Season with salt and pepper to taste (you probably won't need much salt). Serve warm, at room temperature, or cold.
