    Combine the risoni mixture, olive, dill, capsicum and basil in a large bowl.
  3. Step 3

    Place the lemon juice, lemon zest, mustard, sugar and oil in a screw-top jar. Seal and shake to combine. Season.
  4. Step 4

    Drizzle the lemon dressing over the risoni mixture and gently toss to combine. Season to serve.
