  • Grill meat skewers, covered, over medium heat 8 to 12 minutes or until meat is slightly pink in center, turning skewers once or twice during grilling.

  • Meanwhile, cook orzo according to package directions, adding corn the last minute of cooking. Drain in a colander. Rinse; drain again. In a large bowl combine orzo mixture, bell pepper, onion, and tomatoes.

  • For dressing: In a screw-top jar combine lime zest and juice, 2 Tbsp. olive oil, the cilantro, and 1/2 tsp. salt. Cover and shake well. Pour dressing over orzo mixture; toss to coat. To serve, arrange Corn and Orzo Salad on a large platter. Top with meat skewers and, if desired, additional cilantro. Serve with lime wedges. Serves 6.

*

If using wooden skewers, soak in water 30 minutes before building kabobs.

This was a perfect summer night meal! We marinated the steaks for a couple hours prior to putting them on skewers which helped keep the steaks juicy and tender.
