Reviews for Festive Rice Medley
"I have been making this often since it first appeared in the magazine. I'm using brown rice now, for extra nutrition. It's a wonderful combination of flavors."
"This is one of my family's favorite sides. It's very easy. Sometimes I use long grain rice and I don't always have cilantro on hand but it's always yummy!"
