Brown Rice Salad with Fennel, Mushrooms, and Walnuts
Why This Recipe Works
Brown rice salad often features grains that are gummy or tough, with a dull heavy dressing. We cook the rice using the pasta method, which ensures evenly cooked grains in half the usual amount of time. To season the rice, we dress it with vinegar or citrus juice while it is still warm. We then add bold mix-ins that contribute contrasting flavors and textures.
