Lemony Orzo and Green Pea Salad

You must fix this for supper tonight.  It is “delicious”.  I served this with grilled chicken which went with it perfect.  It is soooo refreshing!  You must try it.  It would also be excellent with grilled shrimp.

  • 6 cups cooked orzo pasta, warm or room temperature (1 lb. box)
  • 2 cups frozen baby green peas, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons diced yellow bell pepper
  • 3 tablespoons diced orange bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons minced green onion
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh chives
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest (I used the whole lemon)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, optional

In a large bowl, combine orzo, green peas, yellow and orange bell pepper, green onion, butter, chives, dill, parsley, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and pepper, tossing to combine. Makes 6 to 8 servings. Note:  I added a little bit of olive oil to it also.  Maybe a tablespoon.
