Prep: 6 minutes; Cook: 7 minutes. Fried rice is best when you make it with chilled or leftover rice because chilled rice maintains its texture during stir-frying. If you don't have any rice on hand, cook 1 bag of boil-in-bag brown rice while you prepare the salad and chop the vegetables. Spread the rice on a jelly roll pan, and chill.
