Recipe: Pizza Rice Salad

(and some giveaway info!)

I haven't shared a recipe in a while, so I thought I would share one that I stumbled across recently, and have been craving ever since.  It's super easy - but nobody in my household especially loves it, so I haven't made it in ages.  I decided to grab all the ingredients on my recent grocery run, and I made it for lunch today (tomorrow, and the next day -- unless somebody joins me!)  I confess to "sampling" it once I had all of the ingredients mixed together.  It was yum-o, but it'll be even yummier after I add that second 1/2 cup of dressing.  Oh my - is it lunch time yet?


Pizza Rice Salad - (original recipe from a Minute Rice ad in a magazine)
1.5 cups Original MINUTE Rice
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
3/4 cup sliced pepperoni, halved
1 large tomato, diced
2 cups sliced vegetables (green peppers, mushrooms, ripe olives, green onions)
1 cup Italian salad dressing
  • Prepare rice as directed on the package; cool.
  • Lightly toss rice with remaining ingredients in large bowl, using only 1/2 cup of the dressing.
  • Chill.
  • Just before serving, toss with remaining dressing.
  • Makes 6 servings or so...
