Tasty salad! I used tiny salad shrimp, fat-free Italian dressing and left out the olives. I don't care for onions so just added them to DH's serving and left them off mine. The dressing for this was perfect with the shrimp. I served this as a side but it could easily be a meal on it's own. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
This is a wonderful cold rice salad, I was going to omit the basil but decided to add it in and I'm glad I did although I only added in a small pinch as the Italian dressing already has lots of flavor, also I used 1 small minced garlic clove instead of the powder, used Kalamata olives and frozen thawed cut green beans, cooked frozen thawed shrimp, lots of fresh ground black pepper and a pinch of cayenne, thanks Annacia we loved this!
