This is a different Rice-a-Roni Salad. No olives or artichokes. You can use chopped chicken or turkey but seafood or crab is delicious. If you refrigerate overnight, the flavors really blend. So easy! Any time of the year to serve, just leave out the chopped radishes in the winter! I prefer using the crab.
