Mediterranean Rice Salad with Herbs and Feta is a delicious, versatile side dish! The fresh taste from the herbs, buttery olive oil, and tangy feta cheese give it a decidedly Mediterranean feel.
This Mediterranean rice salad can be served warm or cold, and is vegetarian and gluten-free, making it perfect year round. It can also be easily modified to suit your family’s tastes. Switch the brown rice for white, the feta for mozzarella, or the cannellini beans for garbanzos. It’s also a great way to use any leftover rice that you may have in your fridge.
It is important to use the best quality olive oil you can afford, as the flavor really comes through in this salad.
If you love feta cheese as much as I do, try this Zucchini Ribbon Salad with Feta and Fresh Mint or Mediterranean Quinoa Salad with Pesto and Feta.
