Greek Style Miracle Rice
Audrey loves creating beautiful low-carb recipes using our noodles and rice! Today she came up with a great summery side with fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, and olives!
"I use Miracle Rice as a substitute for couscous in various recipes. This salad makes a great side dish for grilled meats or fish, or for a picnic, potluck or BBQ. Add shredded chicken to make a salad entree.
I used English cucumbers in the salad because the skin is thin, and it's unnecessary to peel. If using regular cucumbers, peel the skin as they are usually coated in wax." - Audrey at Creative Low Carb Fusion.
