Southwest Orzo Salad

This is one of my favorite recipes!
2/3 cup dried orzo, follow cooking directions on package
1 can black beans (rinsed and drained)
1 ½ cup frozen corn, thawed
1-2 ripe tomatoes, diced
1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
¼ c chopped green onion
1 tsp grated lime peel
1/3 cup lime juice*
salt
pepper

This salad just gets better as it sits, so I always prepare it during nap time, and then by dinner time it’s SOOOOO good! Can be the main course, or an appetizer. Good served with fruit.

*best from real limes, but if you don’t have real limes, Minute Maid makes a good lime concentrate that you can find in the freezer section at most grocery stores by the orange juice, they have lemon and lime, and I always have at least one bottle of each)
