Mediterranean Brown Rice Salad

My family and friends all love this salad, which they've referred to as "the Greek salad." The recipe makes enough to feed a crowd, so it's a perfect bring-along for a big party. No matter what you're looking for—something with the Greek flavors you love, or just a healthy, simple salad—it will not disappoint! If you'd like, substitute orzo for the rice. —Sarah Hawkins, Wanatah, Indiana
