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