I came across a version of this salad and I liked the idea, except it was made with wheat berries. Since wheat is a big NO-NO for me I switched out the grain to one that is delicious and has a toothsome chew – Short Grain Brown Rice.
This dish would be great for those that meal prep. It is simple to make add has few ingredients.
- 3 c vegetable broth
- 1 1/2 c short grain brown rice
Combine ingredients into a large dutch oven. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook rice until the broth is completely absorbed and the rice is tender.
- Cilantro Dressing
- 1 1/2 c cherry tomatoes, quartered
- 8 large kalamata olives, pitted, coarsely chopped
Combine all the ingredients: rice, Cilantro Dressing, tomatoes and olives into a large bowl. Thoroughly stir.
Note: This can be served warm, room temperature or chilled. Also, you could bulk it up with some mixed greens.
Serve. Eat. Enjoy.
