    Yummy! Next time I will make it with brown rice, I think that would add another nice layer and healthier. It also makes great leftovers! I added 1/2 a can of chickpeas and a can of salmon, delish!

    Delicious salad! I've made this several times and double it - it's even better the second day. Yum!

    I made this for a work picnic and people loved it. This will definitely go in my file of recipes. I didn't have kalamata olives so I used black and completely forgot the peppers. It was still very tasty!

    I'm not a big spinach eater, but when i tried this, it was delicious!

    This recipe is wonderful! I have made this several times and people always ask for the recipe. It is fabulous warm, and leftover!

    Excellent! I cut the spinach into small strips and sauteed it with the red peppers and garlic. Other than that, I didn't change the recipe. (I did this because I have become accustomed to my sister's complaint that raw spinach makes her sick.) At any rate, this is really incredibly tasty. I am marinating beef kebabs, and I've got asparagus with olive oil and salt waiting for the grill. This salad is going to be an outstanding accompaniment. I can't wait to eat this meal! (Oh, and of course, there will be heated pita bread and labne with cucumbers (which will be good on both this rice salad and the meat).) Yum!!! (Finally, and by the way, I used brown basmati. It's excellent.)

    I did like this though I felt something was missing. Maybe mint? And I think the ratio of rice to fresh vegetables is too high. If I made it again I'd only make 1 cup of rice not 1 and 1/2 cups of rice.
