Greek Brown and Wild Rice Bowls
This fresh rice dish tastes like the Mediterranean in a bowl! It's short on ingredients, but packs in so much flavor. For a handheld version, leave out the rice and tuck the rest of the ingredients in a pita pocket. —Darla Andrews, Schertz, Texas
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 15 min.
- 1 package (8-1/2 ounces) ready-to-serve whole grain brown and wild rice medley
- 1/4 cup Greek vinaigrette, divided
- 1/2 medium ripe avocado, peeled and sliced
- 3/4 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1/4 cup pitted Greek olives, sliced
- Minced fresh parsley, optional

Test Kitchen tips
Health Tip: These otherwise healthy bowls are high in sodium because of the prepared rice, dressing, feta cheese and Greek olives. Save on sodium by cooking the rice from scratch and using a simple oil and vinegar dressing.
