  • “Everybodyloves it, a great make-ahead dish.”

  • “My step-daughter gave me this recipe and it is to dye for.Loved everything about it.My sis and I subed purple hule peas one night for the black beans and I would not recommend that to anyone.I did cut back a little on the Feta cheese for personal preference, but other than that made as directed.Can’t wait for garden fresh veggies.”

  • “This was a great side to grilled chicken on a hot evening.I omitted the celery, and used fat free dressing and reduced fat feta, with good success.We think it would also be good with grilled shrimp.Thanks for posting!”

  • “This was totally devoured at a family dinner. Had to skip the onion for an allergy, added some corn and subbed jicama for the celery. Everyone raved, and I took home an empty bowl. Can’t get a better endorsement than that!”

  • “This came out terrific and it was the perfect, complete meal for a hot day in August. I used chopped celery from our store’s salad bar instead of buying a whole stalk of celery for this recipe to save time and money.I cooked the rice in a rice cooker first. In the mean time, I chopped aand combined the tomatoes, celery, green onions and parsley in a bowl. As soon as the rice was cooked, I added it to the bowl with the Italian dressing, then marinated the salad overnight to let the flavors have time to blend. I added the feta cheese as a garnish on top, right before serving, so it wouldn’t be slimy in the salad. I used Wishbone’s Italian Dressing with Herbs and Spices. Fresh and easy. Thanks Tish!”
