Gluten-Free Rice and Spinach Pesto Salad

1 Cup Dry Rice
1/4 Cup Spinach Pesto
1 Can Cannellini Beans
1/4 Cup Black Olives
Salt
Pepper

Are you looking for an easy gluten and dairy free meal? Try this simple rice pesto salad, rich in protein and gluten and dairy free–let me know what you think.

Cook rice by following the directions on the box.  I used a brown rice mix as I find the texture of the different rice adds to the flavor of the salad.

Once rice is cooked add to bowl and add pesto.  I used homemade pesto and did not include cheese as most pesto recipes call for (pine nuts, garlic, oil, basil, and baby spinach).  Add rinsed and drained beans, olives, salt and pepper to taste.

Volia you have a simple gluten and dairy free salad that you can serve for lunch, dinner, or a healthy snack.

Serve salad room temperature and enjoy, refrigerate left overs.

Happy Cooking!

    Oh I like this salad idea. I’ve saved it to try at a later date as I’ve never thought of adding pesto to rice before. Thanks for sharing, Chloe.
