  1. Combine the rice and water in a small saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, and reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 45 to 50 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  2. Place cooled rice in a large bowl. Stir in the kidney beans, red onions, mushrooms, broccoli, bell peppers, and almonds; season with pepper. Toss salad with the Italian dressing and olive oil.
  3. Chill for at least one hour before serving.

Like a lot of the other reviews, we added quite a bit more salad dressing than the recipe called for. I served it for guests and everyone liked it. I think the kidney beans and slivered almonds...

I made this recipe as written (except I forgot to pick up a green pepper, but I did have orange, yellow, and red). Oh, and I used *minute* rice because I'm lazy. It's pretty good. I can't dec...

I made this for Dinner yesterday and it was very tasty. Used the leftovers for lunch in tortillas. Makes good wraps. Thank you

This was awesome! I used more rice (made it in my rice cooker, and added salt, which this dish needed!), and a LOT more veggies: a whole crown of broccoli (cooked in the microwave for 3 minutes...

LOVE this salad! Simple and refreshing. I did add a little more salad dressing and omitted the olive oil. I also added a couple sliced pepperoncinis. I will be making this again and again, than...

Very good recipe. I used pecans instead of almonds and an oil/sugar/vinegar dressing instead of Italian dressing. Love the combination of flavors. Will use this for lunch at work.
