This is a great and tangy side dish to fish or chicken. Serves 4
1 cup orzo pasta
2 tbsp each of chopped fresh dill and parsley
2 tbsp chopped scallions (green onions)
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp grated lemon rind
1 tbsp lemon juice
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the orzo for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender but firm, drain well.
Toss with dill, parsley, onions, oil, lemon rind and lemon juice.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
This is best served immediately. For a make-ahead version, make this with rice instead of orzo.
