Some of my favorite flavors mingle together in this colorful and satisfying dressed up rice dish. Robust Kalamata olives are somewhat tempered by and certainly complemented by the creamy avocado and tomato. The rice is the canvas and provides the most delightful backdrop for the combined components. It a textural taste experience. Once you are done with the pitting, peeling and chopping, it's a fast and easy dish to put together. Consider serving it with soup or chili.
I've posted this recipe before, but it's worth reposting and I've updated the photos.
