Rice salad recipes have been around in the eastern countries for a long time. Rice was their staple food much as potatoes was to ours – or so we think. Actually potatoes had to be introduced to North America – they were not native. The early natives used corn and wild rice as their staple food.
Cold rice salad recipes provide a nice alternative to pasta or green salads to accompany a BBQ or for a potluck or picnic.
These simple recipes are usually quite colourful and the dressings plus spices or herbs can make them extremely tasty. You can even adjust the recipes to make them really hot or very mild depending on your preferences.
