Hi, I'm Jillian the submitter of this recipe. I use Uncle Ben's Long Grain and Wild Rice for this recipe as a personal preference. To cut down on time they have a microwave bag that's done in 90 seconds if you prefer. I also use Hellman's light mayo and FRESH lemon juice. This is easy to throw together and chock full of vibrant colors and flavors - not to mention it's light. I hope you enjoy it!

Oh, YUM, Jillian! How long has this recipe been around? I was just poking around and found it. Would you believe that I served this warm tonight with leftover turkey (the kosher one from Trader Joe's) from last night? And tomorrow I'll have it for lunch cold from the fridge. I didn't add salt, I didn't have yellow pepper, and I used full-fat mayo (I know...). Otherwise I followed your directions. This is so easy and such a great side dish! I LOVE the versatility of recipes like this one! Thank you very much!

Made exactly as written and it was delicious! I brought it to a barbecue and everyone asked for the recipe. Have also made it with quinoa, which is also excellent. Thanks, Jillian!

I used 100% wild rice which makes it taste nutty and crunchy (but doesn't look at all like the picture!). Very good!

Awesome, easy and has a great light flavor with the lemon zest which I added a little more than called for. Simple and well worth the effort. Oh, we didn't have the long grain wild rice so we used white minute rice and wild rice in a nice combination.

This was really delicious, and it was also simple and quick to prepare. I used the 5 minute Uncle Ben's Long Grain and Wild Rice. I also shredded a deli chicken and added it to the salad to make it a main dish. We'll make this again - thanks for posting!

I made this with an ancient grain rice and lentil mix and it was wonderful. Basic recipe that taste wonderful and could be easily added upon with extra veggies. Yummy yummy

Made this tonight, very very good. I didn't have all ingredients so I subbed a chopped red onion for the green, and just 1 full red pepper (didn't have a yeller one, and added some left over quinoa to it. Will be our new cold salad side! Very good submit, thanks ?? ??
