Instructions
Mix up the Vinaigrette
  1. Press the clove of garlic, or chop very fine
  2. Add the juice of the lemon, the olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic and salt and pepper to a jar
  3. Finely chop the fresh oregano leaves (doesn't that smell amazing?) or grab your dried oregano
  4. Add the oregano to the jar and give it all a good shake. Set aside
Make the Salad
  1. Place the cooked brown rice into a large bowl
  2. Chop the cucumbers and cherry tomatoes into small pieces. I usually just cut the cherry tomatoes in half. And add to the rice
  3. Give the salad a stir and add the Kalamata olives
  4. Add the crumbled Feta
  5. Add about 1/2 of the vinaigrette and give the whole salad a stir. Taste and adjust the seasonings
  6. If you are using fresh mint - grab the leaves and pile them on top of each other
  7. Roll them up and cut cut to get tiny mint ribbons - also know as Chiffonade
  8. Add the mint to the salad and stir again. Refrigerate for 20 minutes to let the flavors meld
  9. Give it one last stir, taste and adjust the seasonings. Add more dressing, if needed
  10. Serve with your favorite summer meals - we love it with burgers. The leftovers are wonderful the next day too!
