My step-daughter gave me this recipe and it is to dye for. Loved everything about it. My sis and I subed purple hule peas one night for the black beans and I would not recommend that to anyone. I did cut back a little on the Feta cheese for personal preference, but other than that made as directed. Can't wait for garden fresh veggies.
This came out terrific and it was the perfect, complete meal for a hot day in August. I used chopped celery from our store's salad bar instead of buying a whole stalk of celery for this recipe to save time and money. I cooked the rice in a rice cooker first. In the mean time, I chopped aand combined the tomatoes, celery, green onions and parsley in a bowl. As soon as the rice was cooked, I added it to the bowl with the Italian dressing, then marinated the salad overnight to let the flavors have time to blend. I added the feta cheese as a garnish on top, right before serving, so it wouldn't be slimy in the salad. I used Wishbone's Italian Dressing with Herbs and Spices. Fresh and easy. Thanks Tish!

I live in Las Vegas. I was lucky enough to run into Recipezaar around Nov. 2000 and got hooked quickly. I am a cookbook collector and have been collecting recipes for as long as I can remember. My DH had to build in shelves for all my cookbooks! I like to dabble with OAMC and for a few years hosted the Budget/OAMC forum with some great people over there. Even though I don't work in the forum any longer I've set up a lot of cookbooks for the purpose of OAMC and stretching food that might be helpful. Please feel free to check them out! I go on food jags and cooking jags! Please come say hi to me and chat on facebook. I currently host a blog for saving money through finding deals and coupons if you are interested. Most of the time I try to cook and have a good dinner on the table but I'll be honest enough to say there is still fast food occasionally in the budget! I have had such wonderful support here whenever I need it. Thank you all for being here! Just a quick note on how I rate recipes: ? 5 stars - This recipe is perfect. (My DH is truly a critic and doesn't give 5's unless it's amazing) I would recommend it to others and would definitely make again. ? 4 stars - This recipe was good but I would change something in it next time. ? 3 stars - This is a recipe I would not make again but it was OK ? 2 stars - This recipe I would not make again and we didn't like it at all ? 1 star - This recipes did not work out/taste was unappealing and wouldn't make again
