This was a very filling and refreshing salad. I used white rather than brown rice because that's what I had on hand, left out the sprouts because I forgot them and used green bell pepper because it was cheaper. Still I doubt that these changed the essential flavor and texture of the salad. I sprinkled a bit of chopped hard-boiled egg over the top to add a bit of protein and it became a very satisfying meal.
