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.
The other ingredients you probably already have in your pantry or vegetable drawer. In a few months you might have them in your garden too!
Once the rice is done, then you’re almost ready to roll. All you do is throw all the ingredients in a large bowl, mix with a spoon and it’s ready to serve. I told you it was easy!
Now there’s only one thing left to do it – eat it!
Enjoy everyone! Hope you like this Corn and Tomato Rice Salad as much as I do.
