How To Make Rice Salad with Grilled Vegetables

Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 5 mins
Total: 25 mins


  • cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • ½ tsp garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh basil, minced, or 1/2 tsp. dried
  • 1 tsp fresh marjoram, minced, or 1/2 tsp. dried
  • salt, to taste
  • black pepper, freshly-ground, to taste
  • 1 large onion, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 red bell pepper, halved
  • 2 large Portobello mushroom caps
  • 2 small zucchini, halved lengthwise
  • 4 cup long-grain rice, leftover cooked


  1. Light the fire in your grill and get it down to medium-high heat. Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper.

  2. Place vegetables on a baking sheet and drizzle dressing over them, turning to coat evenly. Reserve any dressing remaining of baking sheet.

  3. Grill vegetables (you may use a grill basket, or grill them directly on the grill rack) around 5 minutes, until slightly charred but still firm.

  4. Transfer vegetables to a platter to cool. Chop vegetables into ½-inch pieces and place in a large bowl. Add rice and remaining dressing and toss to combine.
