    Christine Bettiga's Note:

    My mom makes this for picnics and it usually is a hit! I love the different flavors in this recipe! If you like more spice, add essence or cayenne pepper or even minced jalapeno!

      This is a sensational salad, and very visually appealing, too. The flavors practically burst in your mouth! I used a long grain & wild rice combo and added slivered almonds, which could enable it to stand as a main dish salad. Mmmmm Mmmmm good! (P.S....and it doesn't take 2 1/2 hours to make...don't get's a piece of cake)

      This is a great picnic or family together recipe. The cumin adds a great flavor. When I prepared this dish for a large gathering, I had so many requests for the recipe, even one from Hawaii. It is a great summer salad. Takes some time to chop all the veggies but it's well worth it. I left out the hot peppers, essence and cayenne pepper.

      Stunning flavors. I used barley and lentils instead of rice, half the oil, and toasted the garlic. Dazzling, lively salad. Company worthy.
