Vibrant Ingredients

Although this salad is quick and simple, each of the few ingredients plays a role in adding not only flavor but vibrant color making it all the more appetizing!

Add a bit of green with fresh arugula and creamy avocado along with the deep red color of the pickled beets and bright white feta cheese and ranch dressing!

Make this salad work for you! Arugula adds great flavor, but you can swap in spinach or a pre-packaged kale mix. Use what you have on hand or that you can easily find. You can also swap in goat cheese for feta if desired.

To make this salad light but filling, use our Minute® Ready to Serve Multi-Grain Medley made with a blend of brown rice, flaxseed, quinoa and chia seeds! And, did you know you can double this salad by heating up two perfectly portioned cups? Make it a perfect meal for one or a side dish to share!

Using Pickled Beets

Beets add a sweet touch to your meal packed with antioxidants. Also, pickled beets are a convenient alternative to using fresh beets that are easy to store in your fridge for more rice salads or rice bowls.
