Slow Cooker Greek Rice with Red Bell Pepper, Feta, and Kalamata Olives is an easy-to-make and delicious side dish; use the Crock-Pot Casserole Crock Slow Cooker for this tasty dish, or use a large oval slow cooker if that’s what you have.
I love summer when lots of dinners are just something easy cooked on the grill, and this Slow Cooker Greek Rice with Red Bell Pepper, Feta, and Kalamata Olives from Kalyn’s Kitchen is a perfect side dish for any kind of grilled meat. I recently updated this recipe to make it work in the Crock-Pot Casserole Crock Slow Cooker, and it was definitely a hit.
The new casserole crock recipe makes 6-8 servings, but if that’s too much for you (or if you want to use a small oval slow cooker like I did the first time I made this), there’s a link in the recipe post to the original version that makes 4-6 servings as well. Cooking rice in the slow cooker is a great way to get a nice side dish for something on the grill without heating up the house, but this tasty Slow Cooker Greek Rice is a great side dish any time of year..
