Default Rice "salad" recipe

Not sure what to call it, so I went with salad, my father-in-law was telling me about this yesterday and it sounded pretty good/healthy so I figured I'd share it.


1 cup rice (jasmine, basmati, etc. I assume any kind would work, as long as its NOT instant).
frozen peas
red & green pepper, very finely diced
red wine vinegar
olive oil

1) make 1 cup dry rice according to package directions
2) when rice is done cooking, add frozen peas in (cools rice, thaws peas at same time)
3) add diced peppers
4) add 1-2T of both olive oil and vinegar and toss/stir to combine

5) can eat warm, or let cool/refridgerate and enjoy cool as well.

I imagine you could add some diced onions, garlic, etc as well and it would be good.

Steak/Chicken or Pork would be better yet. Salmon or Tuna in a pinch.....

That's really cool, its little bit similar to Chinese rice. I love to eat rice but just reduce my rice consumption for the sake of keeping my body fitness at good level. Although rice are good source of protein and give much energy but I have over using them. ... So anyway.. its a nice recipe and worth trying it..
