For the salad:

  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 bag salad greens
  • 2 cups red grapes sliced in half
  • 1 cup crumbled ricotta salata Trader Joe's has this

For the vinaigrette:

  • 3 Tbs white wine vinegar
  • 3 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 Tbs brown mustard
  • pepper


  • Cook the rice and cool. I found it easiest to make up a batch of rice in the morning, put it in the fridge for the evening or a day or two later.
  • In a large bowl combine the cold rice, sunflower seeds, salad greens. Toss.
  • In a small bowl mix the vinaigrette, whisking to mix.
  • Pour vinaigrette over the salad and mix.
  • Add the grapes and ricotta salata, toss a bit and serve cold.
