Sofrito Rice & Black Bean Salad

Sofrito Rice SaladDinner was quick and easy the other night with Rita’s Sofrito Rice turned into a salad.  Sofrito rice is flavorful so you just need to add vegetables and a vinaigrette. If using leftover refrigerated rice, briefly microwave to soften because the starch hardens a bit when it’s chilled.  Add the following in amounts to your taste (or what you have on hand!):

  • canned black beans (rinsed and drained)
  • frozen corn kernels, thawed (or fresh corn, raw or lightly grilled)
  • diced red bell pepper
  • quartered cherry tomatoes
  • chopped cilantro, mint or basil — or all three herbs

Drizzle with olive oil, lemon or lime juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Ready to serve!

Settle down on the patio with a glass of chilled Rioja and cool off! Refrigerate leftovers but this salad is best served fresh.
