1 1/2 cups
uncooked long-grain white rice
chopped red onion
red wine vinegar
Didn't like it the first time I made it but with a few changes it was transformed into a dish worthy of a four star rating.
Reduce the onion by at least half. Saute onion and celery just until tender before adding to cucumber and feta. Add a few greek olives to jazz it up. Cut preparation time way down by cooking rice in microwave. Has a great feta taste which was hidden by all the raw onion in original recipe.
I served this with "Grecian Pork Tenderloin" for a lovely Greek-style meal.
I did not care for this at all. I ended up throwing the whole thing away. I definitely would not recommend this, BUT if you are thinking about trying it, I would offer these tips: sautee the onions and celery and make sure you don't cook the rice too long.
This recipe definitely needs some enhancement as it was rather bland! I added salt and oregano. I would decrease the amount of red onion (was overpowering) and possibly increase the oil and vinegar. If you do all of this, I think you'll be much better satisfied with the results. I'll make it again, but only by enhancing it as I've stated here.
We really really enjoyed this. The heat from the rice brings out the flavours of the feta(I used garlic-herb flavoured feta) very nicely and the crunch from the veggies is a nice surprise. I diced my veggies fairly small, and I only used half an onion. I agree that a whole cup would have been too overpowering. This was great cold the next day for lunch with some cold leftover chicken chopped into it. It's always great when you try something and it turns out to be better than you were expecting! :-)
I sauteed the onions and celery in butter, but not for too long. I still wanted the vegetables to have a little crunch. Otherwise very good!
Loved this! I sauteed the onion and celery and used only 1/2c of onion. I used garlic/herb feta. Excellent!
This was a pleasant change from regular rice. I sprayed a non-stick pan and sauted the onion and celery for a bit. I also added sliced black olives. Enjoyed.
This was very good! It did need a few changes though. As per other reviewers I added half the onion called for. Instead of vinegar, I used fresh squeezed lemon juice and added fresh, chopped cilantro, minced garlic and basil to taste. Between the warmth of the rice, the tang of the feta, the crunch of the vegetables and the fresh herbs and lemon..there was a party going on in my mouth! Thank you Danielle for a great basic recipe.
