This savory side dish has been a family favorite for years. Our 12-year-old daughter, Jennifer, is an expert with this recipe, which is a great help for a busy working mom like me. We sure enjoy this rice dish in the summer with a grilled entree.

The zesty flavor of onion is great with the crunch of celery in this light dish. It's a tasty side dish for a holiday meal. I sometimes add chopped shrimp, chicken or beef to make it into a one-dish meal.
This is a special side dish my mother liked to serve at church dinners. She was recognized by family and friends as an outstanding cook. It's a pleasure to share her recipe with you. —Nancy Frank, Ariel, Pennsylvania
When my daughter was growing up, I could get her to eat lima beans in this casserole with lots of cheese. She's an adult now and still thinks cheese helps almost every vegetable recipe!—Tickle Ragland, Hodgenville, Kentucky
The mild, minty flavor and almond crunch make this nice side dish for a meal with lamb. People will likely be impressed when you prepare this different and palate-pleasing rice casserole. —Ann Eastman
