Brown Rice Salad with Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Basil and Feta

Summer time is all about fresh veggies and eating outside! This salad is a great way to combine tasty fresh tomatoes and cucumbers with a healthy grain, brown rice. This combo reminds me of one of my favorite orzo greek salads, but is refreshing with the addition of a new twist to the salad with rice. Great for a picnic!
