Just made this today - SOOO good. I did add chopped, de-seeded jalapenos and used Uncle Ben's Wild Rice, which I was worried about - but turned out amazing!! I'm not serving it until tomorrow so that all the flavors can blend, and I used orange bell pepper instead. Oh, and I LOVE cliantro, so I used a ton of fresh cilantro, just thrown in. I doubled the recipe because I am cooking for a potluck.
I've been looking for a good rice salad for a while. Finally, here it is! I like that it has a lot of veggies that I can pick from my late summer garden. I used brown rice and substituted basil
for cilantro. The whole family enjoyed it.
