Mediterranean Veggie Rice Salad

Ingredients:

1 cup cooked brown rice (I like short grain brown rice for this recipe)

1 cup chopped sweet bell peppers (red, orange, yellow) 

1 cup chopped cucumbers

1/4-1/2 cup chopped onions (I like sweet onions)

1 avocado, cubed

Feta cheese 

Olives (optional) 

Tomatoes, chopped OR cherry or Juliette tomatoes (optional)

Sweet balsamic vinegar and/or Italian or Greek dressing

 

Directions: 

I cook my brown rice in my Instant Pot (see right)-- it's quick, requires no monitoring, makes very little mess and makes perfect rice every time! 

Toss veggies and rice together in a large bowl OR serve "salad bar style" 

Top with avocado, feta cheese and balsamic or dressing of your choice.
