Rice Salad Recipe

This rice salad comes to us from my friend Carolyn. I absolutely love it and finally made a video for you. It is easy and delish!

You are going to need three cups of cooked and cold rice for this recipe. That is 1 cup of raw rice. You can also make this with brown rice.

This is a great salad to take on picnics or potlucks. It also compliments barbecues very nicely.

This is what you are going to need for this fantastic salad:

½ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup sour cream
¼ cup vinegar
