rice salad

Friday, March 22, 2013


This has been on heavy rotation around here. I have been making a big batch which is perfect for lunches or a beach day.

salad ingredients:

3 cups cooked brown rice, cooled {love using the cooked, frozen brown rice medley at TJ's if I'm in a rush}

1 cup artichoke hearts, chopped

10 cherry tomatos, chopped

1/2 medium red onion, finely chopped

1/2 red bell pepper, chopped {I like jarred roasted red peppers too}

1/2 cup kalamata olives, chopped

1/2 cup english peas

1/2 cup basil, chopped

1/2 cup parsley,chopped

1/2 cup roasted and chopped almonds

dressing ingredients:

1/4 cup grape seed oil

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1 minced garlic clove

lemon juice from 1 lemon

1 tsp dijon mustard

1 tbs honey

salt & pepper

Mix together all the salad ingredients in a big bowl. I like putting all the dressing ingredients in a Mason Jar and then giving it a good shake with the lid on. Once the dressing is mixed up add it to the salad & enjoy.
