Greek rice salad


As the weather is getting hotter and hotter every day, everyone wants only something light... On my today's wish list was something with rice and cold. That's exactly when I remembered Kalofagos.ca blogged recipe just a few weeks ago... And I really liked it!!! As always...

What we need:

250 ml rice
2 cucumbers ( optional)
1 green and 1 red bell peppers
1 spring onion
10 olives
100gr of fresh peas
1 finely grated carrot
2 tbsp of olive oil
2 tbsp of lemon juice and zest
salt and pepper to taste
chopped dill and parsley, thyme

What we have to do :

1. Wash the rice in water and put into a pot, add 500ml water and boil for 8 min then cover with a lid and leave for 10 more min. Then let it cool. (If you have no time or you are very hungry, pour over cold water and drain)
2. Peel the cucumber, cut into small cubes. Grate carrot. Cut peppers and spring onion. Put vegetables into a bowl.
3. Add salt and pepper. Add chopped olives, peas and herbs. Mix in the rice and add lemon juice and olive oil. Mix it well and serve! Enjoy!!!
