This Mexican inspired pasta salad, is packed full of protein. Orzo is tossed with peppers, chickpeas, kidney beans, black beans, sweetcorn and seasoned with fresh coriander and lime juice. It's perfect for a summer barbecue.
Have to admit I subbed seeded jalapenos for the bell peppers...but this has to be one of the most refreshing salads ever. It has a very clean and bright flavor...and since I used olive oil instead of canola...has to be healthy as well. The perfect summer side dish! - 24 May 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I loved this. It's simple, tasty, refreshing. It's been great to have this in the refrigerator as a snack during the day or as a side for dinner. It's turned out to be pretty filling too. My wife was very impressed with me, so that was a nice bonus. - 12 Apr 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Loved this! Only used 2 cans black beans and added a can of Mexicorn. Also didn't have bell peppers so added a can of diced jalapenos. I love cumin and chili powder so I used about a 1/2 tsp of each. Delicious! - 08 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
