Flavorful Rice Dressing Recipe

My original dressing seems to satisfy people who prefer dressing made with bread and those who prefer a rice variety. It includes both, plus spinach and a hint of orange for unexpected surprises. Leftover dressing (if there is any!) reheats well. -Gloria Warczak, Cedarburg, Wisconsin
