1

Measure rice accurately using the measuring cup that came with your rice cooker. Rinse rice quickly once, drain and place in the inner cooking pan.

2

In a separate bowl, mix salt and pepper into the water, and add to the inner cooking pan. Place the herbs on top of the rice.

3

Cook the rice using the “Mixed Rice” setting.

4

While rice cooks, combine all remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Refrigerate the mixture and allow to marinade.

5

When rice completes cooking, discard basil and bay leaf. Gently fluff the rice with rice spatula, and spread out onto a large plate. Refrigerate to cool, about 30 minutes.

6

When rice cools, add rice to the marinated tomato/mozzarella mixture, and toss gently.
