With colorful bursts of flavor, this flavorful dish is perfect for a weeknight meal or pair it with succulent grilled chicken.
Bright citrus flavors combined with tart dried cranberries, crunchy pistachios, and creamy goat cheese, perfectly accented with fresh dill – a stand-alone dish, also fabulous paired with grilled chicken.
Heat rice according to package directions.
Meanwhile, heat olive oil in pan on medium heat, add shallots and sauté for 1 minute, add cranberries and heat for an additional minute.
Add pistachios, rice, salt and fresh dill. Mix well until heated through.
Squeeze fresh lemon over rice and serve garnished with goat cheese, lemon slices, and dill on top.
Simply put, dill is used to add flavor to recipes. With its light leaves, it can bring a fresh green taste to a number of dishes, especially those with vegetables, salad, and seafood. You can also use it in homemade spreads and dips for a delicious herby hint.
While both cheeses may look similar – being white, soft, and creamy – they are, in fact, different. The main difference being that feta comes from sheep’s milk, and goat cheese is made from goat’s milk.
