I modified a recipe for a cold rice chicken dish, by omitting the mayonnaise dressing and the result was delicious. The test was when my picky 15-year old son came into the kitchen asking "what smells good?", and then he ate every bite. The flavor of the rice is a gentle mild curry with a hint of lemon,and very light. The chicken and peppers are just slightly seasoned to retain their natural flavors.
