"Awesome salad! Made the following changes: to the dressing, I added 2 T white sugar, 1 T each lemon and lime juice, 1/2 T Cumin, and some Chipotle hot sauce. To the salad, I used all hulled barley (..." See moreno rice), 1 sweet onion instead of green, doubled the corn (used frozen), and omitted the lettuce. I also added some garbonzo beans, chopped cucumber, a yellow bell pepper, and some tomatoes. Also followed other reviews about the dressing ingredients ratios.

"I have made this several times and enjoy it every time. I have also made it for gatherings and have had recipe requests each time. I read the previous reviews before preparing it the first time and ..." See moreso made some modifications - double the vinegar, garlic and pepper flakes and cut the oil in half. I use brown rice or white/brown rice mixed. I cook the grains together and add some boullion to the water. And I use italian parsley instead of cilantro (not a fan of cilantro). Thanks for submitting the recipe!"

I prefer to heat the olive oil up to about 200 degree or so and add the garlic and red pe..." See morepper flakes to it. This technique always adds extra zip to oil soluable flavors in these spices. I also took the advice of those who suggested more vinegar and less oil."
