BONNIE Q. 9

"The unique flavor of basmati rice and the rich nuttiness of roasted corn are highlighted by fresh lemon juice and basil in a salad that's always a crowd pleaser at our summer barbecues. This salad is best served well chilled."

This is an excellent side! The only thing I disagree with is the chilling part. It is so good at room temp! Thanks!
