RightRice with Cherry Tomatoes & Basil (“Bruschetta Style”)
RightRice’s texture holds up for all types of salads. In this version, we take the fresh flavors of ripe tomatoes and fresh basil and toss them in extra-virgin olive oil with a little crushed garlic. For added texture and flavor, toss in small pieces of fresh mozzarella and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
1 package RightRice
3 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 cup assorted cherry tomatoes, halved
¼ cup basil leaves, torn or finely sliced
1 clove garlic, finely minced
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
½ cup diced fresh mozzarella
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
Cook the RightRice according to the packaging instructions. Fluff with a fork and toss with a tablespoon of the extra-virgin olive oil.
To make the topping, combine the cherry tomatoes, basil, garlic, and remaining 2 Tbsp of olive oil with a generous pinch of salt and grinding of pepper. Stir and taste, adding more seasoning as desired.
Top each serving of rice with a generous spoonful of the tomato and basil salad.
