Basmati rice salad

 

Delicious Brown Basmati Rice Salad.

To make this yummy rice salad, I thought olives, green onions, tomatoes and walnuts would be a nice combo!

I mixed the chopped olives, onions, walnuts and tomatoes with the dressing to marinate while the rice was cooking.

I sampled it, of course, to make sure I was on the right track…very nice!  I love this tangy mixture.

The warm rice steamed up the veggies and made it even more yummy! Did you know you could purchase brown basmati rice? More fiber = better for you.

This recipe makes about 6 servings.  Serving size about 3/4 cup

I added lots of walnuts to this recipe because walnuts are very good for you.  If you take a look at a walnut half it looks like the human brain!  In fact, walnuts are one of the few plant foods that contain healthy omega-3 fats which are great for your heart, brain and mood. There are 2 kinds of common walnuts: English and the black walnut.   Walnuts are a great source of fiber, protein, magnesium, phosphorus and manganese.
