Spinach Feta Rice Salad with Chicken Sausage

If you have a food allergy, eating out or going to dinner with family and friends can be a bit stressful. Did the person that prepared the food really make sure that the dish did not come in contact with something I’m allergic to? What if they didn’t even know? While these situations can be risky, a fool-proof solution would be to volunteer to bring your own dish. The salad below would be the perfect dish to bring to your next dinner party with friends!

This salad is loaded with plenty of nutrients that are both tasty and fulfilling. The whole grains from the rice add fiber which helps you feel full and energized. Mixing in veggies helps decrease the amount of carbs while providing a variety of textures and plenty of vitamins and minerals.  Lastly, the protein in the chicken sausage makes this a hearty meal suitable for any occasion.
