THE FIRST TIME I tried this salad, I knew it was a keeper. Using rice as the basic ingredient is a refreshing change. I serve it as a luncheon salad or a side dish for a main meal. Garnished with olives and tomato wedges, it makes a colorful addition to the table. -Flois Price, Morgan, Texas

"I made this last month and lost the recipe. My husband and I really like it. I doubled it, otherwise, made just as stated. I didn't mold it, however. I will try it warm, too. It is a keeper for us!"
