This side dish is a light, refreshing, and a wonderful accompiniment to broiled fish or meat. It is also a great use of leftovers. You can vary the nuts from walnuts, to pecans, pine nuts or even sunflower seeds.

This is a very good rice dish. We all really enjoyed it. I used my Wok to saute in. I cut the lemon in half as my husband isn't crazy about lemon. He thought it was very good and it had enough lemon for me as well. I subbed sliced almonds for the walnuts and they were perfect. I will be making this one again. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
