Versatile Rice Salads

NAPSI

Add interest to your menu with grain-based salads. They can double as a meal or a side dish and complement a variety of foods.

Rice is one of the most popular grains to use. With its nutty flavor and delightful aroma, American-grown RiceSelect Texmati Rice complements most
ingredients you have on hand to create your own special dish.

For example, mix cooked rice with marinated, dried tomatoes and green onion; drizzle with Caesar dressing, feta cheese and olives for an Athenian salad.

Or try a slightly sweet blend of rice, apples and dried cranberries in a yogurt dressing topped with toasted chopped nuts.

Rice salads can be eaten warm or chilled, depending on what you add. Since the flavor gets better with time, consider making it in advance and chill for a
quick-to-serve meal.
