Summer Salad by The Well Seasoned Nest

This salad would be great for a dinner party!

Orzo Pasta Salad with Black Beans and Cilantro

1 cup dry orzo, cooked a bit past al dente, but not mushy - rinse in cold water and drain well
1-2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
2-3 ears or corn, cooked and kernels removed (frozen can be substituted)
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1 small red onion or 3-4 shallots, chopped
cilantro, chopped
ancho chili powder
fresh lime juice (about 2 small limes)
olive oil
red wine vinegar
salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients.  (Make early in the day and refrigerate so the flavors combine.)
