Warm Rice Salad

I got this recipe from a friend about 10 years ago. It has become a family favourite. It is a great replacement for potatoes or pasta and works well as a side dish at a BBQ. Not for those on a diet though!

We really enjoyed this. My DD, who is quite picky, gave it a thumbs up and a 5 and so did the rest of us. It is very easy and made a lot. I used 3 teaspoons of granulated garlic instead of fresh but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It makes for great left overs. I will be making this often. Thank you barb63, we think this will become one of our family favourites too.
