I made this one day by throwing the last little bit of everything edible in my fridge together, and it turned out to be SO yummy that it gets requested at least once or twice a week, even by the brown rice haters around here (ahem..me.)
Recipe, of sorts:
Brown Rice Salad
4-6 cups Cooked, cooled long grain brown rice
4-6 cups salad mix, chopped into bite size pieces
A couple of grated carrots
cucumber or two, sliced
sliced green onions
a stalk or two of diced celery
2-3 cups plain yogurt...I use Greek yogurt, cause it is nice and thick
shredded cheese, 1/4 cup or so
the chilli oil I talked about here, 1-2 tablespoons, depending on how much heat you like
salt and pepper to taste
Assemble and mix well. Serve!!
ETA This recipe makes a LOT...enough for a full meal for my large eating family, and enough for a normal family to take to a potluck, lol. It can keep for about two meals, otherwise the cukes and salad starts getting soggy.
