Feta, avocado and basmati rice salad


This salad is just lovely on a hot summer day. I found this on http://tilda.com. Tilda is a brand of basmati rice and they offer recipes on their website. This is from the website and definitely a keeper!
For the rice salad

Cook the rice in a large pan of boiling water following pack instructions.Drain and spread out in a thin layer in a wide, shallow serving bowl. Allow to cool.Meanwhile, place the tomato, cucumber, red onion, avocado, feta cheese, olives and fresh herbs in a bowl and stir gently to combine.

For the dressing

Place all the dressing ingredients in a bowl and mix well.Season to taste, then stir gently through the cooked and cooled rice.Add the tomato mixture to the rice and stir gently to combine. Serve immediately.

1/2 small red onion, very finely diced
1 avocado, peeled, destoned and chopped into 1cm cubes
100g feta cheese, crumbled
