Well, DH really loved this rice dish ~ me, I liked it but I think I need to give it another try. But 5-stars since it made my DH so very happy. I used canned beets as I was short on time, and DH especially loved that part. Thanks Sharon123 for the hubby-pleasing dish. Made for TAG IT RED, Feb 2009.
This was a very nice, fresh-tasting salad. Surprisingly, the only ingredient that didn't work for me was the beets, as I love them. Perhaps mine were overly-mushy, but I just didn't care for them in combination with the rice and crunchy vegetables. The dressing is super and I'm going to be trying it on lots of other salads. I went with the higher amount of sugar as I liked the way it cut the acidity of the vinegar and rounded out the flavours of the horseradish and mustard - it was by no means sweet, even with 2 tsps.
