Healthy Recipe: Brown Rice Salad

brown rice salad

This salad has been my favorite for a long time. It is filling yet refreshing, especially in the summer. There is no need for a separate dressing, and it can be made hours before serving, making it an ideal choice for a potluck or a picnic. I served this salad at a pre-show picnic at the Hollywood Bowl, and it was a big hit with my friends.
