French Rice Salad

Jenna at Food with Kid Appeal posted a recipe the other day for French Rice Salad. I had a feeling it would be a hit with me and my kids, so I tried it out. It is delicious!!

I did that stupid thing where you convince yourself you have a bag of corn in the freezer so you don't need to pick any up when you're at the store - and then get home and, lo and behold, no corn. Grr. So I made the salad with peas instead, which tasted great, but doesn't look nearly as pretty as Jenna's! This salad is a definite must-try - I made a big double batch yesterday and it's already almost gone.

thanks for the mention! I'll have to try it with peas, that looks good. the unexpected run out happens to me all the time. one week i found myself with no rice, no pasta, no cornmeal, no breadcrumbs, no flour.
