I served this at room temperature and liked the combination of flavors, but I felt it was missing something as far as seasoning. I might try it again and spice it up a bit. It has the potential to be a great side dish. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Took this to a picnic. People agreed that they would use less rice (maybe 3/4s cup) for the amount of other ingredients. We all loved how much greenery there was in it. Made for ZWT9.

We really enjoyed this lovely side dish, and were surprised by the depth of flavor it had! I made this exactly as posted, except I used halved grape tomatoes in place of the chopped tomato. This was perfectly seasoned and was served cold. Thanks for sharing. Made by a Tasty Tester for ZWT9.
