This cool, creamy rice salad is great for warm weather when you don’t feel like eating a plate full of steamy food. I add tomatoes and cucumber, drizzle with a dreamy yogurt-based dressing and top with fresh basil.
It screams summer!
Plus, you can make this ahead of time and serve it cold or at room temperature.
It makes for a great potluck and picnic item, and frees you up to enjoy the party. Cause I don’t want to have to fuss over food when I could be sipping a drink and chatting with friends or running around with the kiddos.
Sometimes both… 😉 All about the multi-tasking!
This cool rice salad goes with everything – grilled or roasted chicken, fish, pork or steak. And if you’ve got a spicy dish, this will help cool things down. It’s an ideal, get-along-with-everyone kind of side dish.
So if it’s hot and humid outside, mix up this little rice salad and cool things down.
