very tasty! definitely tasted better after it sat for a while. i agree, improvising and adding some more veggies would be a good alteration :)

This recipe could have used more of the veggies. I recommend doubling the red bell pepper and cucumber.

*Made for My 3 Chefs* Delicious! I am always looking for recipes that use this wonderful grain, and I'm glad to have found this one. This makes a nice refreshing salad for those hot summer days when you don't feel like eating anything heavy. My store was out of wild rice, so I had to use a basmati/wild rice mix. Other than that, I made the recipe exactly as written and we loved it. Thank you for sharing this easy and delicious recipe...it is definitely a keeper!
