1/2 Photos of Cold Rice Mozzarella Ham Salad
One of my favorites, and also my own creation, great to serve at get togethers. Make certain to use only Uncle Ben's converted rice for this. You can add in other veggies along with radishes and celery if desired. I serve this at my BBQ get togethers, everyone loves this, and it is a nice change from potato salad. Prep time does not include boiling rice, but does include chilling time You can substitute salami for the ham. Instead of shredded mozza cheese you can cube it.
