This Corn and Tomato Rice Salad is a healthy recipe for dinner, picnics and potlucks. With it’s Mexican inspired flavor it’ll be a hit with everyone! And even better, it’s easy to make in 15 minutes!
I’m in love with this rice salad. I took a version of this recipe to a potluck last week and I’m proud to say it was the first dish that was empty. This is a great fresh ingredient recipe that lightens up dinner. You can serve it as a side dish or a main dish, preferably served alongside some fresh bread.
What I especially love about it is that due to the lime juice, crushed red pepper flakes and cilantro it has a Mexican flavor added to it. Anyone else love Mexican flavored everything? This salad is so good you could even fill up a burrito with it and call it dinner.
And because I love fresh recipes that are quick to make, this salad is ready to serve in 15 minutes.
The main ingredient is Minute® Whole Grain Brown Rice so you’ll have great-tasting fluffy rice in just 10 minutes. Brown Rice is a nutritious option as it has similar nutritional values to regular long cooking brown rice, but it’s done in 1/4 the time. I love brown rice because of it’s versatility – you can use in cheesy casseroles or light lunch options. One tip to get the tastiest brown rice is instead of boiling in water, try vegetable broth.
