I've made this dish many times and my family and friends love it! It's tasty and healthy. What a great dish. It's definitely a keeper!
Loved it!! I used a full bag of Basmati rice, 12oz, added an additional can of beans. I had pink beans on hand and I doubled the dressing so as to have extra on hand if the rice got 'dry' after the initial absorbtion. Was even better the next day.
This dish is perfect as it is, but I did look at reviews and modify just a bit. I used pinto beans instead of kidneys. Used two big cloves of garlic instead of one, and I used a garlic press instead of mincing so people didn't get a big CHUNK. I LOVED using basmati rice, but I did mix some of the dressing with the rice before adding to the the veggies and beans so I wouldn't have a clumping issue. Used fresh corn (2+cups) only because it was available. Make sure to let it marinate for a few hours!! Thanks for an excellent recipe!!
Excellent! I will make this often.
Still not over the celebration that had occurred in my mouth.
