The unique flavor of basmati rice and the rich nuttiness of roasted corn are highlighted by fresh lemon juice and basil in a salad that's always a crowd pleaser at our summer barbecues. This salad is best served well chilled.

This is an excellent side! The only thing I disagree with is the chilling part. It is so good at room temp! Thanks!

I stuck pretty exactly to the recipe and took for a picnic with cold meat and it was raved about (spring breakers!) - very refreshing.

I have made this recipe twice. The first time I made it was for a tex-mex potluck, so I changed it a bit: substituted brown rice for white rice, used frozen corn in place of fresh, used lime juice instead of lemon, used canned mexican-style diced tomatoes in place of fresh, used only about half the dressing, subbed cilantro for the basil, and roasted the purple onions with the corn. I think we may have added some homemade salsa and crushed red pepper also. But it was absolutely amazing!!! Just about a different recipe. The second time I made it, I followed the recipe. It was ok, still too much oil and too much dressing overall, and used brown rice and frozen corn again. Pretty good, but not as good.
