Feta is Greek for "piece" or "slice," and refers to an important step in the process of making this delicious cheese. Adding this traditional Greek ingredient to a flatbread filled with olives and other fresh vegetables makes for a nutritious dinner option. Click here to see the recipe.
- 1 cup uncooked long grain brown rice
- 2 ½ cups water
- 1 avocado - peeled, pitted, and diced
- ¼ cup lemon juice
- 2 vine-ripened tomatoes, diced
- 1 ½ cups diced English cucumbers
- ⅓ cup diced red onion
- ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
- ¼ cup sliced Kalamata olives
- ¼ cup chopped fresh mint
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- ½ teaspoon minced garlic
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
Bring the brown rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 45 to 50 minutes remove from heat and allow to cool, fluffing occasionally with a fork.
Toss the avocado and lemon juice together in a large bowl. Add the tomatoes, cucumber, onion, feta, olives, mint, olive oil, lemon zest, garlic, salt, and pepper to the bowl lightly toss the mixture until evenly combined. Fold the cooled rice gently into the mixture. Serve immediately or chill up to 1 hour the salad does not last well for more than a day as the tomato and cucumber begin to release their juices and the salad becomes watery.

Combine Pasta and Baked Feta
Once timer goes off, remove tomatoes and cheese from oven. You will notice that the tomatoes are cooked and fragrant, if basil was added there will be bits of black basil (try one, salty!).
At this point you really could stop and enjoy this tomato feta pasta without the pasta as just a dip…. scoop onto crustini…mmmmmmmmm. But for another time.
Toss in chopped garlic and about another 1/4th to 1/3rd chopped fresh basil leaves.
Stir in about half of the made pasta to start, making sure tomatoes and cheese get mixed in.
Once the pasta is incorporated, add the rest of the pasta and stir.
Optionally a bit more cracked pepper on top.
There is no doubt that this is one tiktok viral recipe we are seriously enjoying!
