Brown Rice Salad

Posted on July 2, 2009. Filed under: side dish |

I made this salad for our 4th of July BBQ. I made it a day in advance and it was perfect! It tastes healthy, refreshing and is satisfying.

Serves 10
2 cup of brown rice
4 cups water
1 cup silvered almonds
1 cup dried cranberries
2 large apples, peeled and chopped into small pieces
2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt (optional)
2 teaspoons of red wine vinegar
1/4 cup finely chopped green onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 can mandarin oranges, drained

Directions:

Rinse rice thoroughly. Bring it to a boil with 2 cups of water, then cook over low heat with the lid on for approximately 30 minutes or until rice is tender.

Combine cooked rice with all other ingredients in a large bowl. Toss well and season according to taste.

This delicious rice dish is best served warm or at room temperature. Enjoy!
