Yum! This is a good dish. It has a unique flavor that we liked. (Although be aware that prep time is longer than the 30 min. Cooking, chopping and assembling all the ingredients took me at least 45 min.)
I made this recipe the first time, with the mayo and soup, as written. I only had 1/4cup of almonds and since my family does not like celery a lot I only added 1/2 cup minced celery with 1/4 cup minced carrots. I added some "nature's season", to the soup mix to add more flavor, since others said it needed something. The rice turned out moist and the mayo gave it an almost buttery flavor, although it still needed a little something extra.
The second time I added 1/2c. mayo and 1/2c. sour cream, as others suggest. The final result was not as good! We did not enjoy it nearly as well. It took away that unique flavor.
Also, I know others are adding extra soup to make it more creamy, but this recipe isn't meant to be a creamy, soupy consistency. This changes the recipe too much; to something different. I still want to add a little more spice in the future. Thanks for this good recipe.
