Bring plenty of water to the boil in a large pot, salt and then add rice. In the meantime, wash strawberries, remove the stalks and cut the strawberries into 4 pieces (6 pieces if they are very large).
Wash the mint leaves, cut them into thin strips and put aside. Coarsely crumble the goat cheese and put in the fridge until the rice is done. Drain the rice, put it back into the pot, add strawberries and two tablespoons of olive oil and mix.
Then add crumbled goat cheese and mint leaves. Stir well and salt if necessary. Serve hot or cold as a rice salad.
