Prep time:
Total time:
Serves: 4


  • 2 cups (300 grams) warm, cooked rice (white is traditional, but brown would be okay, too)
  • 2 tablespoons Vinaigrette Dressing (recipe is here)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 plum tomato, chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped fine
  • 1 carrot, peeled & chopped fine
  • 2 tablespoons capers (packed in brine or salt cured)
  • Handful of fresh parsley, chopped
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Sea salt (optional)


  1. Add the rice to a deep bowl. Stir in the Vinaigrette and olive oil. Add the tomatoes, celery, carrot, capers, and parsley. Stir until well mixed. Season with the pepper. Let sit 30 minutes before serving so rice can absorb all of the flavors.
