One of my family's favorite salads! Prep time does not include cooking the rice. This needs to chill for minumum of 3 hours before serving, so plan ahead. Please don't leave out the pimientos, this is really what brings out the flavor in this salad. I have even added in crumbled feta cheese or cubed cheddar cheese, but that is optional. All ingredients can be adjusted to suit taste. Recipe may be doubled if desired.
