Italian Rice Salad

So, as a busy wedding planner, who likes to cook and eat healthy, it’s important to be able to create healthy, delicious meals fairly quickly. A great way to do this is to make big batches of your staples one day a week, and use them to create meals throughout the week. Today, it was easy to create an awesome meal in a matter of minutes. Enter…Italian Rice Salad:

I whipped up this Italian Rice Salad to take to work for lunch today, and had plenty left to take a batch to my mom. See how easy this is?

Italian Rice Salad.

-one cup cooked brown rice
-one cup rinsed cannellini beans


-1 chopped tomato
-2 T chopped basil
-1/4 cup diced fresh mozzarella cheese
-a splash of olive oil and balsamic vinegar
-salt and pepper to taste

Mix everything together and enjoy my Italian Rice Salad. I ate it cold, but it would probably be delicious heated up too. Try it and let me know.

Dinner was yet another salad creation:

Spring mix, tomatoes (of course),cucumber, avocado,cheddar cheese, ham, ranch dressing, and hot sauce (why not?) I’m a salad eating fool 🙂
