Similar to paella, but served chilled, this colorful summertime dish is the perfect centerpiece at summer outing! Summer is the best season for fresh cilantro and this recipe takes advantage of the herb's refreshing flavor. If you know my plight - I either have to join them (the residents' who always want rice twice a day) and this is the way I am doing it - I'm joining them sort of!! :) BTW - found this on Goya web site.
