    Stunning flavors. I used barley and lentils instead of rice, half the oil, and toasted the garlic. Dazzling, lively salad. Company worthy.

    This is a sensational salad, and very visually appealing, too. The flavors practically burst in your mouth! I used a long grain & wild rice combo and added slivered almonds, which could enable it to stand as a main dish salad. Mmmmm Mmmmm good! (P.S....and it doesn't take 2 1/2 hours to make...don't get scared...it's a piece of cake)

    This is a great picnic or family together recipe. The cumin adds a great flavor. When I prepared this dish for a large gathering, I had so many requests for the recipe, even one from Hawaii. It is a great summer salad. Takes some time to chop all the veggies but it's well worth it. I left out the hot peppers, essence and cayenne pepper.
