Thai Rice Salad with Three Herbs

"The trio of mint, basil and cilantro, along with tangy-sweet seasoned rice vinegar, gives this refreshing salad its Thai orientation. Instead of white rice, we’ve used chewy short-grain brown rice."

Little heavy on the lime, and I found myself making extra dressing to mix in - but a very unique flavor, and very good.

Really great recipe. One word to describe it: YUM!!!

This recipe was a great way to add some excitement to brown rice. I served it with the Thai Breaded Chicken Fillets from this site and it was a very satisfying meal.

Absolutely loved this recipe - so fresh tasting and lovely flavors. I made it just as directed and wouldn't change a thing! Thanks for sharing...

Okay ... I would give this 5 stars, but the rest of the family wasn't as wild about it as I was, so I'm giving it four. It's different, great to make up ahead ... wonderful for summer!
