Delicious, Delicious, Delicious Rice Salad

I read about Josey's Rice salad a while ago, but today I made it for lunch. Oh my - I'll definitely be making it again - Ssoooooo Yummmy!!! It's very filling and has simple ingredients. My kind of recipe. We're trying to eat healthier - more veggies, less sweets, more whole-grains. This kind of salad is perfect for that kind of diet because it add interesting flavor and texture to a basic grain and veggies.

Josey’s Rice Salade

*Serves 4

2 cups cooked and chilled brown rice (about 1 cup uncooked brown rice, cooked and chilled)
1 cup corn kernels (canned or frozen, unthawed)
1/4 cup black olives, sliced
1 stalk celery, sliced thinly
2 green onions, sliced thinly or 1/4 cup red onion, diced
3 boiled eggs, peeled and sliced
5 small tomatoes, chopped or 1-1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
5 leaves of romaine lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces

French Dressing
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoons salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Combine French dressing ingredients in a large salad bowl. Stir in chilled rice, corn, celery, onions and egg slices. Refrigerate until serving (best chilled for at least an hour). Serve salad on a bed of romaine lettuce and sprinkle tomatoes on top.
