Recipe: Caribbean Rice Salad


Hi Everyone!

I want to share a recipe with you all that my family absolutely LOVES!  In fact, I just made this yesterday and packed lunches for both of my daughters.  It’s simple, delicious AND nutritious!  Check it out below!

Caribbean Rice Salad

  • 2 cups of jasmine rice (may substitute with brown rice or quinoa)
  • 1 can of drained black beans
  • chopped red, yellow, green and orange peppers
  • quarter cup of chopped green onions


    • 1/4 cup of olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon of dijon mustard
    • 1 tablespoon of squeezed lemon
    • a splash of white wine vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon of cumin
    • a pinch of salt and pepper
    • 3 cloves of garlic pressed


  1. Cook the rice and refrigerate
  2. Drain, rinse and toss in the black beans
  3. Mix in the red, yellow, green and orange peppers, and green onions
  4. In a separate container, mix the ingredients for the dressing
  5. Pour dressing over the rice
  6. Mix and toss
  7. Allow dish to sit in fridge for about an hour to let the flavors set in

And that’s it!  This dish will be good for a couple of days in the refrigerator!  It is a great source of protein and fiber!  Go ahead and try it out.  I’d love to see some pictures of the dishes you all create.  Share them here in the comments!

Love always from Your Personal Trainer,
