Quick Brown Rice and Feta Salad

Brown Rice and Feta Salad

Another quick post as I must admit I liked this one more than I thought I would. Isn’t this normally the way?

This started off a dinner this evening but ended up as tomorrow’s lunch. It’s a very simple salad of brown rice, feta and vegetables. It’s best served with the rice slightly warm.

  • 200g cooked brown rice
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 80g Feta cheese, diced
  • 1 onion finely sliced.
  • About two handfuls of mixed thinly sliced peppers (I used three whole mini versions)
  • 1 stick of celery very finely sliced
  • One carrot, grated
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 ‘glug’ of garlic infused oil (sorry workmates!)
  • 1 handful of chopped fresh basil leaves
  • Salt and pepper

What could be easier! Just prepare the vegetables and mix together in a bowl. I fried the onion to soften and sweeten it up first. Add the oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper (to taste) and mix well.
