orzo9I love this pasta!! It is my all time favorite. it is so fresh and so light, it screams spring and goes with everything as side.


You will need:

  • 1/2 cup or so of Hellmann’s Mayo
  • 1 1/2 Cups of Orzo Pasta
  • A hand full of dill about 1/4 cup (cut)
  • 1 green onion chopped
  • 1/2 lemon or lime I used it seems a half this time lol squeezed
  • 1 cucumber seeds removed and diced.
  • Salt and pepper to taste

In a boiling pot of water according to package directions, add the orzo.

orzo4While that is simmering, chop cucumber and green onion and slice lemon in half.

orzo2Add into a nice size casserole dish.

orzo3Drain your orzo pasta and rinse thoroughly with cool water.

orzo5Shake off excess water and pour into dish with the cucumber onion mixture.

orzo6Squeeze lemon in and add mayo.  Stir.
