This is a wonderfully flavorful rice salad. It's been a family classic forever. My mother originally found it as a pasta salad in a cookbook and tried making it with rice because a friend with celiac disease was coming over. It was so good, we never even tried it with pasta! We've been trying to figure out which cookbook it came from, but can't. If anyone recognizes it and knows where it came from, please let me know! I'd love to credit the source. —erinbdm
