Greek Salad with Heirloom Rice

I love greek salad and with all of the heat the last thing anyone wants to do is cook, I decided to make this version that includes some rice for protein and iron. Heirloom rice comes in lots of varieties (the kind I used is red rice from Level Ground Trading) it is extremely nutritious and adds some nice variety to your diet aside from the typical brown/white. Rice is a crop that has been greatly affected by the movement toward monoculture, purchasing heirloom varieties helps to support indigenous communities and maintain seed varieties. greek salad dressing Dressing 1/4 cup lime juice 1/4 cup olive oil 1 heaping tbsp honey greek seasoning Salad 1 chopped cucumber 2 chopped pepppers feta cheese (optional) 1.5 cup cooked rice
