PeaceBang’s Chewy Rice Summer Salad

Oh, this is so good.

Trader Joe’s makes a Rice Medley of red rice, and black barley. It’s pretty good stuff. But I made it GREAT! GREAT, I tell you! *bombastic circus ring leader voice*

Trader joes Rice Medley

1 packet cooked Trader Joe’s Rice Medley

1/3 or 1/2 cup thawed sweet corn niblets

1/3 to 1/2 cup thawed roasted corn niblets (also available at TJ’s)

a handful of diced Vidalia onion

some good olive oil

1/2 fresh lime

salt and pepper

Put the cooked rice in a bowl while still warm. Throw in corn and chopped onion and mix well. Drizzle generously with olive oil. Squeeze the lime juice and toss well again. Add salt and pepper to taste and toss yet again.

You will stand at the counter spooning this stuff into your mouth as fast as you can. Some chopped cilantro or parsley would also be great in this. Goes beautifully with grilled meats and veg. Enjoy!
