'BOTW' Summer Fresh Orzo Salad with Pesto Dill

I end up finding the best fresh summer recipes in Bon Appetite.  I tend to be drawn to recipes that use fresh veggies that are in season and recipes that are simple to throw together.  Great taste and easy assembly.  So when I saw this Orzo, green bean and fennel salad with dill pesto, I knew it would be my 'Best of the Web' feature of the week and  it won't be long before I make a batch of it myself.  I love orzo.

Cook green beans in large saucepan of boiling salted water until just tender, about 5 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer beans to plate. Add orzo to same boiling water. Cook until tender, stirring occasionally; drain.

Blend dill, oil, vinegar, and lemon juice in mini processor until almost smooth. Season dressing with salt and pepper.

Cut beans crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Place in large bowl. Add orzo, cucumber, and fennel; mix in dressing. Season salad to taste with salt and pepper.
