Thai Rice Salad with Three Herbs

The trio of mint, basil and cilantro, along with tangy-sweet seasoned rice vinegar, gives this refreshing salad its Thai orientation. Instead of white rice, use used chewy short-grain brown rice as a healthier alternative.

Instructions

  1. 1In a 1-cup measuring cup, whisk together seasoned rice vinegar, peanut oil, soy sauce, brown sugar, and if desired, hot chili oil.
  2. 2Add remaining ingredients to a large bowl. Pour dressing over and stir to combine.
  3. 3Notes:
    • Rice may be cooked 2-3 days in advance. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator.
    • Long grain brown rice, or any other rice may be used.
    • If using Thai basil, reduce amount to 1-2 tablespoons.
    • For a main-course salad, add 1 to 2 cups diced cooked chicken.
