Summer Rice Salad from Better Homes and Gardens

Summer Rice Salad (idea from Better Homes and Gardens)

use left over rice (or cook some up)
Toss in vegetables that you desire : peas (I used frozen baby ones and just threw it into the rice as it was cooling, then added cucumber, red or green bell peppers, green onions, parsley,celery, carrots, adding olives if you desire. Top with dried cranberries and toasted walnuts (golden raisins would also be good. Drizzle with a dressing made with equal parts of lemon juice and olive oil or do as I DID use your favorite such as a zesty Italian fat free dressing.(toasted pinenuts would be good too

NOTE: THIS IS ALSO VERY GOOD if you combine the CHICKPEA salad here : with the rice salad!
