1. Cook rice according to package directions. As soon as rice is cooked, transfer to a large bowl and let cool, tossing occasionally.
2. Remove stem ends from tomatoes. Cut tomatoes crosswise in half and squeeze gently to extract seeds and juice. Cut tomatoes into 1/2-inch dice. Add tomatoes, celery, and basil to rice. Toss gently to mix.
3. In a small bowl, combine olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Beat with a fork to blend. Pour dressing over rice, add peas, and toss again.
