Rice | It's Skinny
  • 1 package It's Skinny rice
  • 1/4 bell pepper, diced (~1/4 cup)
  • 3 large cherry tomatoes, diced
  • 1/4 cup green olives, diced
  • 1/4 red onion, diced (~1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped (~1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2.5 tbsp olive oil
  • 1.5 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper


Drain and rinse 1 package of It's Skinny rice. Microwave the rice in a microwave-safe bowl for about 2 minutes until heated through. Let the rice cool, then chill in the fridge until the salad is ready to be mixed.
Dice up your vegetables - about one-quarter of a bell pepper (any color), 3 large cherry tomatoes, a quarter of a red onion, about 1/4 cup of olives (any kind), and about 20 leaves of fresh mint (about 1/4th cup). Combine in a bowl with 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese.
Add the cooled It's Skinny rice to the vegetable mixture and combine. Crumble a quarter of a block of feta cheese - about 1/4th cup (but you can use more if you prefer). Mix.
Dress the Greek rice salad with 2/5 tablespoons of high-quality olive oil and 1.5 tablespoons of red wine vinegar. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper, then taste and adjust the dressing and seasoning based on your tastes.
Refrigerate the Greek pasta salad until completely cooled, then dig in & enjoy!
