“When we lived at Fort Polk, another military wife, Claire, shared this recipe with me after I tasted it at a dinner party she hosted. It is now one of my favorite salads and I am so thankful that she was gracious enough to share her recipe. Prep time assumes you are starting with precooked rice. Cook time is actually the chilling time (although it can chill overnight as well). This makes 6 generous portions or more smaller ones.”

  1. In a skillet, saute mushrooms in oil over medium heat, stirring often, for about 2 minutes or until soft.

  4. In a small bowl, combine all dressing ingredients except oil.
  5. Add oil slowly, while whisking, and blend well.
  6. Pour over rice mixture and toss well.
  7. Test for seasonings- adjust if necessary for flavor or moisture.
