So delicious. I used a whole apple because I had smaller ones. Reduced oil by half, and used evoo instead of veg. I should have added some cucumber too, as I had a lot of it that I wanted to use up. I used white rice and bet brown would have been even better. I think this tastes best at, or near, room temp. Chilled rice has a hard texture. Read More

Delish! Based on other reviewers' comments, I made the following modifications: I used two-thirds brown rice and one-third wild rice mix cooked in half chicken broth and half water. The brown rice made it heartier, and the wild rice mix made the flavors more complex. I omitted the mayo in the dressing and didn't miss it a bit. I substituted olive oil for the vegetable oil. And I sauteed some chicken, chopped it up and put it on top. The chicken was absolutely unnecessary, but made it more of a complete meal rather than a side dish. This recipe makes a lot of salad. I found it tasted even better the next day as flavors had time to meld. Personally, I liked it best at room temp, but it was good at any temp. Thanks Ellen! This will be a regular in our house from now on. Read More

Delicious! And really simple to make. Thanks for the recipe, I will definitely make this again! I used whole grain rice. I cut out the mayonnaise, but other than that I followed the recipe exactly and it was great. I really recommend this recipe. Read More

Hubby gave this a 10! Very nice flavor and crunch. I added a little extra curry to give it a little extra tang. Thanks for sharing! Read More

I found the green onion to be overpowering. I don't think I would make it again, but if I did I would omit the onion or scale it back! Read More

I made this using quinoa instead of rice, and it was delish. The only other change I made was to follow someone else's advice and substitute 1/4 cup EVOO for the vegetable oil. I brought it to a dinner where most went back for seconds. I will make this again often. Thanks for sharing. Read More
