Salad #15 Rice Salad with Roasted Red Pepper and Herbs
  • Salad Ingredients
  • 1¼ cups uncooked rice (I used a mix of wild rice and brown basmati rice)
  • 2-3 springs of fresh basil, mint and italian parsley
  • 4-6 large roasted red, orange or yellow peppers or more if they are small
  • a few squirts of siriacha
  • sea salt and fresh ground pepper
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • Lemon Dressing Ingredients
  • 6 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • juice of 1 lemon (stick it in the microwave for a few seconds to get more juice out of it
  • sea salt and black pepper
  • Directions
  1. Cook the rice and let cool. It's okay for the rice to be a little bit chewy.
  2. Finely chop the herbs and peppers
  3. Add the herbs and peppers to the rice and mix well.
  4. Mix the dressing ingredients in a small container and shake until well mixed.
  5. Add about ¼ cup of the dressing to the rice salad and a squirt of siriacha sauce.
  6. Mix everything well, add more salt and pepper if needed and top with lemon zest.
