"The trio of mint, basil and cilantro, along with tangy-sweet seasoned rice vinegar, gives this refreshing salad its Thai orientation. Instead of white rice, we’ve used chewy short-grain brown rice."

This is quite good! I made a few changes. I'm not a fan of cilantro for cilantro's sake, so I left it out, but I used fresh mint and basil out of my garden to really give it that stronger herb flavor. The dressing was good, but seemed to be missing something, so I added spicy chili garlic paste, lime juice and a pinch of onion salt to give it some zing. Fantastic! It really was tasty,and I bet the leftovers will be even tastier tomorrow. Even my almost two-year-old son loved it, and everyone knows toddlers can be picky!

Little heavy on the lime, and I found myself making extra dressing to mix in - but a very unique flavor, and very good.
