This recipe makes for a nice, fresh and yummy rice salad that is also very satisfying. I really enjoyed the broccoli, chickpeas and red pepper in this (I used a fresh unroasted one, though) and the balsamic vinaigrette. However I would have liked a little more seasoning in this, some garlic maybe and red pepper flakes. Just a little more oomph...
Ill make this again and experiment with different seasonings. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us, mcleod!

This makes a nice healthful salad is great to pack for lunch. I used jarred roasted pepper and steamed some broccoli to add to cooked brown rice. I also will play with the seasonings, but will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing!

I made this using plain balsamic vinegar, fresh roeasted red pepper, and the sunflower seeds. It made a nice lunch with lots of nutrients! I would agree the Lalaloula that it needs a little more seasoning, but overall it's a great salad.
