I wanted to share my new recipe with you:  Greek Minute® Rice Medley Salad. Although I made this recipe with Minute® Multi-Grain Medley (which is no longer available), you can make it with any Minute Rice. You are going to love creating recipes with all of the Minute Rice products because they are ready in just 10 minutes!

I served my Greek Minute Multi-Grain Medley Salad for lunch and my family loved it. It’s a filling meal or side dish because with the chick peas and feta cheese this salad has protein too. I’m excited to discover the new Multi-Grain Medley because it’s made from 100% whole grain, is a good source of fiber and it cooks in only 10 minutes. It’s a great option for those who are gluten-free and I love how colorful it is! It’s also a great recipe to make for your tailgating party!

This salad is a quick and easy recipe packed with flavor! You can serve it as a side dish or as a main dish because it’s got protein in it. My family loved eating it with toasted pita bread!

I was lucky to get invited to a Football Watch Party featuring Minute Rice Recipes in Houston at the home of The Simple Parent with my fellow bloggers. I got to taste a lot of new recipes made with Minute Rice products and chat with my blogging friends about football, cooking and more.

One of my favorite recipes were these Mushroom & Bacon Risotto Bites with a dipping sauce. Another recipe I tried was a delicious twist on the traditional chicken pot pie made by A Day in Motherhood:  Easy Chicken Pot Pie Casserole. I was so impressed with the wide variety of dishes that everyone brought using Minute Rice products.

🥬Caprese Salad on Gluten Free Crackers Appetizer Recipe

Caprese Salad on Van’s® Gluten-Free Crackers

Summertime brings entertaining friends and family and foods on the lighter side! I made Caprese Salad on gluten free crackers that I bought at Target. The fresh taste is truly a treat on a hot summer day, and it’s a bit of a surprise to guests to see salad served on crackers!

Caprese salad is simple to make using only a few ingredients. I loved using it as a topping for my gluten free crackers. You will need to reduce balsamic vinegar on the stove top which takes a little time, but the taste results are so worth it! See my recipe below so you can make it for your family and friends!

Gluten Free Crackers
fresh mozzarella ball
roma tomatoes
fresh basil
balsamic vinegar
salt & pepper


1.   In a small skillet over medium heat, warm the balsamic vinegar until it boils. Reduce heat so it simmers and condenses into a thick syrup.
2.  Slice fresh mozzarella and place on Van’s Simply Delicious® Gluten Free Crackers
3. Slice roma tomatoes and place on top of mozzarella
4.  Select the smallest leaves of fresh basil to place on top of tomato
5.  Drizzle a little reduced balsamic vinegar over the top
6.  Lightly sprinkle with salt & pepper
