Corn Confetti Rice Salad

Corn-Confetti-Rice-SaladF

Brown rice is tossed with bell pepper, scallions, beans and corn before being garnished with nuts and cilantro. Young chefs will have fun making vinaigrette by shaking a jar of rice vinegar together with olive oil and spices. This recipe comes to us from Andrea of Andrea’s Recipes.

Food For Thought: Brown rice contains all three parts of a whole grain: the bran, the germ and the endosperm. It’s more nutritious than white rice, which only contains the grain’s starchy endosperm and not the vitamins, fiber and antioxidants found in the bran and germ.
