  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk kefir
  • 1 bunch of cilantro, chopped
  • Salt to taste

 

Instructions:

  1. Tear lettuce into bite-sized pieces into large bowl. Add cucumber, cooked and cooled rice, and onion.
  2. In a small bowl combine salsa, sour cream, kefir, and cilantro. Mix well to combine and then taste. Add salt as needed.
  3. Pour salsa-cultured dairy dressing over rice and greens. Toss to combine. Serve as is or chill and serve within a few hours.
