Grape Tomatoes Mozzarella Cheese
Wild Rice Salad
Great Side Dish for Cookout
Snack In The Middle of the Day

Why I made Grape Tomatoes Mozzarella Cheese Wild Rice Salad because our regular family dinner was on that night. 

It was very hot that week.  I definitely wanted to have something on the grill instead of "cooking up" the house.  I decided to have the Shrimp on the Barbie.  But what could I make to go by that seafood without shedding so much sweat?  Thankfully, I always have wild rice mix in my pantry.

Grape Tomatoes Mozzarella Cheese Wild Rice Salad, a very healthy and filling side dish great for cook out or snack at work.

Prep Time: 10-15 Minutes  Inactive Cook Time: 60 Minutes
Serving: 4



Usually it doesn't take me very long to come up an idea.  I was actually very surprised that it took me 2 days before this recipe came up in my mind.  All in all, everything turned out perfect in our family dinner as always.  Everybody enjoyed the food, themselves and with each other.

My only comment of this recipe for you is that save tomatoes, cheese and avocado until the last minute to add into the salad.  Enjoy!
