Auntie Mags, this salad is wonderful, I love the flavor. I cut the oil down to 1/3 of the called for amount, otherwise made exactly as written. I'm always looking for ways to liven up brown rice, and I'm so glad you posted this recipe. It's perfect to take to work for lunch too. I've been making this every week now and I love it, thanks Auntie Mags!
