Lemony Rice and Peas
Lemony Rice and Peas is a salad which is jam-packed with fresh summery flavors. This recipe makes enough for 10 generous helpings so it goes a long way as a barbecue side salad or a picnic dish. I make this every 4th of July for our family cookout and I dread to thing what would happen if I didn’t bring a bowl of it one year! There would be mutiny!
This salad couldn’t be easier to make either. Simply cook brown basmati rice according to the package directions. Defrost peas and add all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Mix well and enjoy! Another great bonus of this salad is that it keeps well in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
