Zesty Herbed Rice Pilaf

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.

    We felt that the rice was bland.

    It's requested about twice a month for this recipe. Love the flavors!
