Recipe: Brown-Rice Salad with Spinach and Tomatoes
I found this recipe in either my Prevention magazine or in Martha Stewart's Everyday Cooking. I tore it out and since both magazines are the same size, I can't tell which one it came from. I always have brown rice in my refrigerator because we use it on our wraps and I love it. This recipe looked fresh, healthy and tasty. When I first made it, I wasn't sure if I'd like it, so I halved the recipe. I ended up really, really liking it!
In a large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, dill, garlic and sugar. Season generously with salt and pepper. Add rice, cucumber, spinach and tomatoes and toss to combine.
- 2 tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tsp. red-wine vinegar
- 2 tbs. chopped fresh dill (I used dried dill and if you do, use less than half of what it calls for fresh)
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/4 tsp. sugar
- coarse salt and ground pepper
- 2 c. cooked brown rice
- 1 medium cucumber, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded and sliced
- 2 c. baby spinach
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
This would be a perfect recipe for a luncheon. It's cold, it's fresh and it's light.
I'm linking this up to Tasty Tuesday which is visiting over at (in)courage today. I'm also linking up to Hearth And Soul over at Premeditated Leftovers. Head over and get some new ideas.
