Summer Squash Rice Salad

1 Medium small onion diced

1 cup of sweet basil leaves

1 cup of cooked brown rice

10 leaves of Swiss Chard

2 Tablespoons Olive oil

Your favorite salad dressing (Annie’s Goddess was our choice).


Steam the swiss chard for around five minutes. Sauté the onions and garlic in one tablespoon of olive oil on med-low heat for 3 to 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper with thinly sliced summer squash. Sauté for 3 or 4 more minutes until slightly cooked. Don't overcook.

Lay a base of basil leaves on the plate. Top the basil with brown rice, steamed swiss chard and then finish it off with your summer squash stirfry. Garnish with cherry tomatoes and your favorite summer salad dressing.
