INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. Rinse the rice in a sieve under cold running water. Drain and add rice to a medium saucepan along with 2 ¾ cups of water.
  2. Bring water to a boil before reducing to a simmer. Cook with the lid ajar for 25 to 30 minutes until all the liquid has been absorbed. Transfer cooked rice to a separate bowl and let it cool.
  3. Meanwhile, combine vinegar, garlic (optional), salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Slowly whisk in olive oil to incorporate.
  4. Combine kale, peppers, and onion in a large bowl. Add rice and dressing. Toss well. Optional: Serve and top with crumbled feta.
