This pilaf is fantastic with fish or poultry and especially compatible with turkey. Since it's so colorful, I like to think it makes my turkey "dressed for the holidays". -Erica Ollmann, San Diego, California

"Would work with tilapia fish ... have to cook squash ahead and rice I needed to cook longer."
