Creamy Wonderful Seedless Lemon Dressing and Orzo:

  • 1 teaspoon Wonderful Seedless Lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup Wonderful Seedless Lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons grainy mustard
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon agave or honey
  • Pinch of kosher salt and ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup orzo

Wonderful Seedless Lemon Grilled Vegetables:

  • 1 small zucchini, cutinto 1/2" pieces
  • 1 small yellow squash, cut into 1/2" pieces
  • 1 small bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sumac
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Wonderful Seedless Lemon, sliced, plus more for garnish
  • 3 cups baby arugula
  • 1/3 cup Wonderful Pistachios No Shells Lightly Salted, chopped


  1. For the dressing: Whisk together the lemon zest, lemon juice, mustard, yogurt, honey, salt, and pepper. Slowly whisk in the oil to emulsify and set aside.
  2. Cook orzo in salted water according to the package directions. Drain and transfer to a bowl. Toss with 1/4 cup of the dressing.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the grill to medium-high heat, or the broiler to high. Toss together the zucchini, yellow squash, bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, garlic, salt, sumac, and oil. Place in a grill basket on the grill (or on a sheet tray for the broiler) and add lemon slices. Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are tender and charred—about 6 to 8 minutes on the grill (or 6 minutes in the broiler). Grill extra lemon halves for squeezing, if desired.
  4. Toss orzo with arugula and add veggies. Serve with grilled Wonderful Seedless Lemons, and top with pistachios and dressing.
