Zesty Greek Salad, Crakers and Pineapple

No I don't mean canned pineapple!  Buy a real pineapple and slice it yourself!  I posted a video in the previous post on how to cut a pineapple.  It is worth it, the vitamins are so fresh and your body can readily use them.  Don't forget the past few recipes have been from The Two Sisters cookbook. 

Zesty Greek Salad
3c dry brown rice, cooked
4c fresh baby spinach
2c frozen peas, thawed
1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
1c pitted, chopped black olives
3/4c olive oil
juice of 2 lemons
1 tbsp Bragg's or other soy sauce
1 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp basil
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

1.  Combine the first 5 ingredients in a large bowl.  The rice should still be hot.
2.  Combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl.  Add this to the rice mixture; toss well.

**It is not in the book but I add feta cheese because how can you have a Greek salad with no feta?
