The addition of a colorful, fresh salsa brightens up this dish. You can use your favorite store-bought variety as an alternative, but you might end up with pink rice.
In saucepan, over medium heat add oil and orzo and rice and brown for 4 minutes. Add water and bring to boil. Cover and simmer for 25 minutes or until rice mixture is dry. Set aside for 5 minutes. Fluff with fork. To make salsa, chop jalapeño, tomato and onion. Mix with lime juice and add salt to taste. When rice mixture is cooked toss with fresh salsa. Serve.
