Freshened up Leftover Rice

“I had leftover rice to use and wanted something fresh tasting to accompany grilled salmon. This was just the ticket! Use any fresh herbs as long as they are mild like dill, parsley, cilantro, chives....Use this recipe as your base or as is. For a vegan dish use olive oil rather than butter. And, depending on how juicy your lemon is you may want to add more of the oil/butter.”
