Ingredients

3/4 cup basmati rice 130 g
1/2 cucumbers, medium size, peeled and cut into 1 cm pieces 130 g
10 mini-tomatoes (cherry, miniature or grape), cut into halves 2/3 cup
1/2 shallots, finely chopped 20 g
1 1/3 cup red beans (canned), drained and rinsed 330 mL
10 black olives, rinsed and sliced 4 tbsp
3 1/2 tbsp Italian parsley, fresh, finely chopped 18 g
3 tbsp canola oil 45 mL
3/4 tsp dried oregano 0.4 g
2 tbsp wine vinegar 30 mL
ground pepper to taste [optional]
salt [optional]

Method

  1. Cook the rice. Let stand in the refrigerator at least 30 min (this step can be made ahead).
  2. Meanwhile, prepare and cut the vegetables. Cut the olives. Chop the parsley. Rinse then drain the legumes. Put these ingredients in a salad bowl with the rice.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the oil, vinegar, and oregano. Pour this vinaigrette over the salad then toss gently. Add pepper to taste. It is not necessary to add salt, since the olives are already salted.
  4. Let stand at least 1 h in the refrigerator, then serve.
