My husband and I loved this. He packs a lunch every day, and this is perfect for hot summer days, when a sandwich is just too much. Better even the second day, or make it early in the day for ...

Delicious, and tastes even better the second day! Chill for at least a few hours to allow the flavors to blend. I sometimes substitute instant brown rice and it comes out fine.
