This salad is an easy way to incorporate extra fiber, vitamins, and minerals into your diet. Unlike white rice, brown rice includes bran and germ, making it a healthier and more fiber-rich choice. Unfortunately, its longer cooking time discourages many people from using it. To cut down on prep time, you can use packaged precooked rice or plan to prepare extra when making it for a side dish.
If the spices are too much for a sensitive stomach, omit them. If your taste buds need a little extra, add a pinch more.
For added crunch and sweetness, add a chopped apple or pear to the dish before serving.
