"What a delightful dish! This was our main dish Friday night and I ate the leftovers Sunday night. The lemon keeps the apple from browning. I will definitely make this recipe again."

"OK, so I have to add -- I tried the refrigerated leftovers the next day and, while still good, it wasn't nearly as delicious as when it was just made and at room temperature. Kind of lost the vinegar part of the taste, or something. Anyway, maybe it would have improved if I had allowed to return to room temperature again, I don't know, but just FYI!"

"YES, I would make this again!! I just finished scarfing down a bunch of it. I love that it is totally different than anything I have ever made before, that it is has lots of healthy ingredients in it, and it tastes great. I made it just about exactly as written."

"This was an interesting recipe that I couldn't resist trying. Brown rice is always an eyecatcher and mixed with all those ingredients it was a keeper. Gave some away and they liked it, too."
