This colorful side dish is a proven favorite with family and friends. One of my late son’s friends always requested ‘that rice’ when he came over for dinner. It’s delicious served with grilled salmon, beef, turkey, lamb roast or ham. – Jayne Shiley, Campbellsport, Wisconsin

"A very colorful sidedish. I made the recipe as is and found it could use a little flavoring that would go well with the pecans. Will make again."
