"This salad is best when made the night before. It's great when you have company because all you have to do is pull it out of the fridge and serve."--CL Reader
3 cups water
1 cup uncooked brown rice
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried dillweed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 cups seeded julienne-cut tomato
1 cup julienne-cut green bell pepper
1/2 cup medium pitted ripe olives, halved
1 pound medium shrimp, cooked and peeled
How to Make It
Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan; add rice, and return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and cook, uncovered, 30 minutes or until water is absorbed, stirring occasionally. Spoon the rice into a colander, and rinse under cold running water; drain well, and set the rice aside.
Combine vinegar and next 5 ingredients in a large bowl, and stir with a wire whisk. Add rice, tomato, and remaining ingredients; toss well to coat. Cover and chill at least 2 hours.
