This colorful, south-of-the-border rice salad comes together quickly and features rice tossed with salsa, fresh veggies, lime juice, olive oil, and cilantro. 

How to Make It

Step 1

In a small bowl, stir together lime juice, oil, salsa, cumin and salt. In a large bowl, stir together rice and corn, breaking up any rice clumps.

Step 2

Pour lime-juice mixture over rice mixture and stir well to coat. Add beans, bell pepper, tomatoes and scallions, and toss gently to combine.

Step 3

Just before serving, pit, peel and dice avocado, and stir gently into salad. Sprinkle with cilantro, if desired, and serve.

Just made this today - SOOO good. I did add chopped, de-seeded jalapenos and used Uncle Ben's Wild Rice, which I was worried about - but turned out amazing!! I'm not serving it until tomorrow so that all the flavors can blend, and I used orange bell pepper instead. Oh, and I LOVE cliantro, so I used a ton of fresh cilantro, just thrown in. I doubled the recipe because I am cooking for a potluck.

This was so good! We didn't change a thing, except that we forgot to add the avocado and everyone still gobbled it up. It was even better the next day!

I've been looking for a good rice salad for a while. Finally, here it is! I like that it has a lot of veggies that I can pick from my late summer garden. I used brown rice and substituted basil for cilantro. The whole family enjoyed it.

This is much more than 4 servings in our household! We like to wrap the ingredients in a tortilla... can be eaten warm or chilled - wonderful staple for our "meatless Mondays"!

Love this salad! I think it makes way more than 4 servings. This is a great dish to take to a pot luck or eat at home as a side dish.
