Curried Rice Salad

READY IN: 8hrs 30mins
Recipe by Gwanny Hill

An unusual rice dish with a taste that grows on you as you eat it. The flavor improves as it sits so best to prepare it the night before you plan to serve it. The recipe is from "Count Your Blessings", a cookbook compiled by the women's group of a local church.
