Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil Rice Salad Recipe

Tomato Mozzarella Basil Rice Salad

I love fresh mozzarella, rice, and basil (especially fresh basil from my garden)! Why not add them altogether. This is a delicious cold rice salad and makes for a nice side dish or a even a meal. It’s also great with the Priano Fresh Mozzarella that Aldi has in stores right now for a budget meal that looks gourmet. I used my rice cooker for this recipe and it turned out great. You don’t have to have a rice cooker, just cook the rice per the directions on the bag in a pot.
