Rice Salad with Peppers and Cheese
Rinse rice in a sieve under running water. In a saucepan, combine rice with twice the amount of water and bring to a boil. Season with salt, cover and simmer over low heat until liquid has been absorbed. Let cool slightly.
Mix oil with vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Pour mixture over rice and stir in thyme and peppers. Let cool and season to taste. Just before serving, sprinkle rice with cheese.
