Curried Orzo Salad

I have had this recipe from The Perfect Pantry saved for a long time, I don't know why I have not made this before because I love all things curry flavoured and this was no exception.  Randal also really liked this salad, and we will definitely be making this again.

8 oz orzo
2 tsp curry powder (I like Penzey's sweet curry)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
Juice of half a lemon
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup diced english cucumber

Cook the orzo according to package directions.

In a large bowl mix the mayonnaise, curry powder and lemon juice together.  Add in the orzo, bell pepper, cucumber and raisins and mix well.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
