Rice Salad from Leftovers

Once in a while, I end up with bits and pieces of a few meals hanging around. Usually some rice (I frequently make too much) and bits of vegetables left over from a salad.

On this particular occasion, I had to clean out the fridge to make space for a party and the six or seven dishes I was making. I grabbed the rice, some bits of vegetables and my mom's salad dressing and threw this together in a couple of minutes.

Rice Salad from Leftovers
  • 1-2 cups rice, cooked and cooled
  • 1/2 tomato, diced
  • 1/3 cup cucumber, diced
  • 5-6 kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
  • 2 tbsp Greek salad dressing
  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl, toss and serve.

  2. Koreans have a word for this, it's called bibimbap. :) Here's an example:

  3. @Tamar: awesome. I like the version posted at the link - the ground meat is an excellent idea. I've got to bookmark that.
