Prep time:

15 mins

Cook time:

10 mins

Ingredients:

  •  2 cups cooked & cooled brown basmati rice (or quinoa or orzo)
  • 3/4 cup frozen shelled edamame, thawed (or black beans)
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup chopped yellow squash
  • ½ bunch asparagus, chopped
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 1/2 large green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup torn fresh basil
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup chopped almonds
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 - 4 tablespoons Pour Olive's plain olive oil or infused olive oil
  • Optional: Avocado, cut into cubes
  • Optional: Grilled chicken, cut into cubes
  • Optional: Shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Optional: Drizzle of Pour Olive's plain or infused Balsamic

Method:

  1. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat with a tablespoon of olive oil. Add squash, asparagus and green pepper, then sauté about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. While that's cooking, add the rest of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and toss until well mixed.
  3. When the squash/asparagus/pepper mixture has cooled a bit, add that to the mixing bowl and toss again to combine.
  4. Top with any optional ingredients you'd like to use, like a drizzle of our Balsamic is fantastic!
  5. Serve warm or cold - I like it cold on a hot summer day!
