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.
