Lots of interesting flavors..not too sweet, not too spicy, and a little crunch. Loved it as did husband. Hey bascabaker...seriously..you wrecked the recipe. Don't rate it if you didn't make it correctly the first time.
Sounded good, but I don't think the tea added anything-had to tweek the recipe a lot for a flavor boost: Mixed 1/2 c chili garlic paste with white balsamic vinegar to taste. Tossed with the rice, scallions instead of chives, uncooked jalapeno, chopped cucumbers and fresh basil with the fruit. Topped with roasted salted sunflower seeds instead of expensive pecans. Good.
Wasn't too sure about this recipe - was afraid it would be too sweet, but it was delicious. Wonderful flavor. Will definitely make again.
Very easy and very delicous. I omitted the chives b/c I don't care for them. Husband and kids loved it! We will be making again soon.
