RightRice’s texture holds up for all types of salads. In this version, we take the fresh flavors of ripe tomatoes and fresh basil and toss them in extra-virgin olive oil with a little crushed garlic. For added texture and flavor, toss in small pieces of fresh mozzarella and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.

Ingredients:

1 package RightRice

3 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided

1 cup assorted cherry tomatoes, halved

¼ cup basil leaves, torn or finely sliced 

1 clove garlic, finely minced

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Special Equipment:

½ cup diced fresh mozzarella

1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

Preparation:

Cook the RightRice according to the packaging instructions. Fluff with a fork and toss with a tablespoon of the extra-virgin olive oil.

To make the topping, combine the cherry tomatoes, basil, garlic, and remaining 2 Tbsp of olive oil with a generous pinch of salt and grinding of pepper. Stir and taste, adding more seasoning as desired.

Top each serving of rice with a generous spoonful of the tomato and basil salad.
