Bacon brown rice salad is such a flavorful, nutrient-dense meal. And if you’re not a brown rice fan, you’ll be a believer after you’ve tried this brown rice ‘salad.’ I guess what makes it a salad is there is vinegar included in the recipe. (There aren’t any green leaves involved in this one.) This is one of our top favorite week night recipes we have adapted. I like that it can be partially prepared ahead of time so that you can save time in the evening.
If you bake the brown rice (here’s my favorite way to bake brown rice!), you can refrigerate it, covering it up really well with plastic wrap, up to 1 day in advance. Then when you get home from work, just spend 20 minutes preparing the bacon and the rest of the salad.
