  • Place rice in serving bowl. Add celery, dried cranberries, pecans, green onions, and red onions. Stir in mayonnaise.

  • Whisk together white balsamic vinegar, olive oil, Dijon mustard, honey, and garlic.

  • Toss rice salad with vinaigrette. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for at least an hour to allow flavors to blend.

Cook's Note:

If you can't find blood orange white balsamic vinegar, substitute another fruity-type vinegar.

Just before serving I add a few dashes of the flavored balsamic vinegar or extra vinaigrette for an extra punch.
