The Very Best Confetti Rice

Rated as 4.1 out of 5 Stars

"Rice tossed with dried fruit, nuts, orange zest and green onions. It's very colorful and very tasty. You can use lemon or orange zest, raisins or dried cranberries, and any kind of nut you prefer. It's a recipe that's easy to mold to your tastes. The way I wrote it here is my favorite combination and always a hit with guests."

This dish looked exotic but lacked flavor. I should have followed previous reviews to toast the almonds and add other ingredients.

Easy and tasty. I made it without the onions. It doesn't have any oil or butter, so it is low-fat. Next time I will toast the almonds or use pecans or walnuts.
