      Rinse both rices together in a sieve. In large saucepan, combine rice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, oregano, thyme and 3 1/2 cups water. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer until rice is tender and water is absorbed, about 45 minutes.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 350°F Spread pecans in small baking pan and bake until toasted and fragrant, stirring once, about 7 minutes. Set aside to cool.

      Loved it! A wonderful cold rice salad with a delightful combination of colors, tastes, and textures. This recipe is very lowfat and full of things that are good for you, but it's just plain delicious. I served this for dinner with pork loin but look forward to leftovers in my lunch this week. Wehani rice is a product from Lundberg, mine was sold as Christmas rice. It's a red, nutty, whole grain rice, very delicious and pairs nicely with brown rice. You could use all brown rice in this recipe, if needed. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
