DIRECTIONS

  • I cook both the instant wild and white rice together in a rice cooker along with the chicken bouillion cube til done.
  • Let cool or chill in the fridge.
  • Cook orzo according to package directions and drain with cold water.
  • Once rice and orzo are both somewhat cool, mix together and add the chopped peppers, onion, chopped cilantro, almonds,& salt.
  • In a separate small container, mix the oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice and spices.
  • I've been making this salad dressing so long, I'm estimating the amounts, so adjust to taste.
  • Pour over rice salad, mix thoroughly, add more salt if needed and splash with Balsamic vinegar to taste.
  • Salad is best if chilled for at least an hour or two before serving to blend flavors.
