This was very good. Took it to a ball windup and received lots of compliments. I did make changes though. The things I changed are: used 1 cup basmati rice and 2 cups water with one garlic clove. I added a whole can black beans, one red pepper, bunch of chopped cilantro, used olive oil instead of veg oil, used white wine vinegar instead of regular vinegar, added 1 large jalepeno, sprinkled with cumin. Will definitely make again.

Overall a nice basic recipe. When I make again I will make a few adjustments. I used a fresh jalapeno, removing the seeds, which didn't provide enough zing to the dressing. Next time will use the prepared jalapeno and maybe add some cumin or cilantro to pep up the dressing. I used white vinegar which was a little strong for my taste. I will either cut down on the amount or use rice vinegar for a lighter taste. Also, needed some crunch, so chopped bell pepper or even celery would be a good addition. And cheese is kind of unnecessary, added calories but not much taste...

Great recipe! I've made it several times. It goes well with my daughter and I who are vegetarian and also with my non-vegetarian husband and son. Will continue to make.
