This was not bad. Aesthetically it's not too snazzy but as a side it would be worth making. Read More

I'm giving this five-stars even though I had to change one of the ingredients. I had to use green onions instead of red and believe me it was missed. This salad is awesome and super easy. I baked my brown rice in the oven (see recipe here on AR) and added in some shredded carrot and diced sun-dried tomatoes. If you are not vegan add some hard boiled eggs or tuna and you won't be sorry. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing. Read More
