A perfect blend of refreshing and tangy! Crisp cucumbers, bell pepper and green onion give a perfect crunch to this orzo salad, with a dash of dill and lemon to top it off. Mushrooms add a hearty flavor, or can be left out for a cleaner, crisp dish.lightbox_orzosalad

1/3 cup olive oil or light-tasting olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
2 tablespoons lemon juice
