MY REVIEW

Good idea with the combination of flavors, but this was an epic fail. The rice never got done! If we make this again, we will FULLY cook the rice separately on the cook top before mixing it with the other ingredients.

Only con is the length of time is takes to make...pro is that the oven does that work though ;) I make this a lot, especially when we have salmon for dinner. It's delicious!

This dish became a Thanksgiving traditional side dish when I first started my family. It's remained a staple eleven years later. It's a beautifully delicious side dish and easy to make.
