Baked Calico Rice Recipe

Baked Calico Rice Recipe

I FOUND this pretty rice dish in a salad oil ad in the Ladies' Home Journal back in 1948. It's a favorite not only for its good taste, but for its simplicity of preparation. A potluck and picnic pleaser, this side dish travels well. -Dorothy Lama, Lindsay, California
