Brown Rice Salad


Brown Rice Salad 012

 Here is the recipe for the Brown Rice Salad that I made and took to the Fourth of July party a few days ago.  It’s easy and rather healthy!  It’s best in the summertime with fresh tomatoes and fresh dill when you can get it.  In the winter time cherry tomatoes work best and dried dill works just fine.
