Spring has sprung in Florida, and I’m ready to start making some of my favorite Spring dishes. It’s time to put away those crock pots and turn off your ovens and start having colorful salads, cold soups and light dishes. Fresh, bright and colorful, this salad looks like a giant bowl of confetti. Organic rice, black beans, green onions, corn and brightly colored peppers are combined with a zesty dressing.
Perfect for picnics, parties or just a family dinner this salad is great because it can be made in advanced. In fact, it’s actually better if it’s made the night before because it gives the salad a chance to marinate in the dressing. It can also easily be doubled, if preparing for a crowd and it feeds a large group pretty inexpensively. Serve with chicken or fish for a delicious Spring meal.
1/2 cup olive oil
