    Susan Dillard's Note:

    This recipe is from the Creme de Colorado Cookbook. It is a very easy salad to fix with an unusual flavor. I always have requests for the recipe when I take it to a potluck. The dressing and rice can be prepared ahead of time and combined with the final "fresh" ingredients added just before serving. It can be served in a bowl, or in individual "lettuce cups".

    3. 3
      While rice is warm, pour on dressing and mix well; let cool.
    4. 4

      Very pretty salad. I'm thinking of adding a few dried cranberries for a pop of color. I really enjoyed. I'm always trying to find a good lunch item. Everyone wanted to know what I was eating!!!! I love the sesame oil. It really flavors the rice. Only problem I had was finding the rice!!!! 8-) Will make this again. Husband even commented on how flavorful it was.

      I've made this many times. It is fabulous! A lovely side for just about any meal, I really like it with grilled chicken. Peas give the dish great color but can be left out if you choose. Thanks, Susan, for posting!
