Summer Rice Salad:
It’s summer time fun all day long! We’re relaxing by the pool and enjoying healthy and yummy food. I love this Summer Rice Salad recipe because it’s all about leftover food in my refrigerator that I use to make this easy dish! When I cook rice, I usually cook brown rice and I make a little extra for this recipe. I always have extra veggies in my refrigerator or in my garden so I add what veggies I have on hand.
Once you make this recipe let me know how you like it!
