Chilled Rice Salad

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

One of my family's favorite salads! Prep time does not include cooking the rice. This needs to chill for minumum of 3 hours before serving, so plan ahead. Please don't leave out the pimientos, this is really what brings out the flavor in this salad. I have even added in crumbled feta cheese or cubed cheddar cheese, but that is optional. All ingredients can be adjusted to suit taste. Recipe may be doubled if desired.

My surrogate mom used to make this for Christmas parties but she didn't out any eggs in it - instead she put water chestnuts. And it was yummy!
