Deliciously healthy, full of fiber and low in fat! My kind of salad. I used a rice blend called Aztec, which was made of Colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas and amarath. I saw it at a bulk store, I had never seen such a blend before so of course I bought it! I am sure this salad would be just a tasty with a brown and wild rice blend. I make extra rice on one day of the week so I can use it in salads and soups easily. I have even frozen rice successfully in portion size spoon fulls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, then placed the frozen rice in a ziplock bag for easy use. NOTE: ***Time does not include cooking rice. ***
