      ***For cook time I am estimating the rice cooking time of approximately 30 minutes. Depending on how you cook your rice whether steaming it or cooking it on the stove-top--adjust cooking time accordingly. I am also estimating toasting the pecans in a 350 degree oven for about 5 minutes on a lightly greased cooking sheet. Watch them as they can easily burn!

      This is a good rice salad. I especially liked the lemon zest in the dressing. The toasted pecans added a good contrast to the rice and so did the cucumber. I would recommend that you do deseed the cucumber s Juenessa states. I will be using the recipe throughout summer. Thank you for posting.

      I made this delicious salad to take to dinner a couple nights ago, but still didn't have my camera back. Sorry! It was inhaled - everyone (other than DH who doesn't like mustard) really enjoyed this - I will definitely make it again. I scaled it down for 4-6 people. Great recipe! Beverage Tag Sept 07.
