Rice A Roni™ Salad Recipe
Mayonnaise and Worcestershire sauce create a nippy dressing for this rice and chicken salad. Water chestnuts and celery add a bit of crunch. If you're careful about the amount of dressing you stir in, this salad can be chilled and unmolded onto a plate.
A dash of pepper sauce and Worcestershire make this artichoke rice salad zippy, and a wonderful salad to serve at a barbecue with grilled lamb, or with thick slices of tomato as a satisfying luncheon entree.
This recipe was excellent! The first time I made it I used beef flavour Rice A Roni (was serving it with a barbequed roast beef for my future inlaws), added salad shrimp and chopped red and green peppers, second time with chicken flavoured rice and shrimp. Everyone loved it and requested the recipe! I'm usually not a fan of cold rice salads but this was great!
This recipe was easy enough to fix, but did not have enough visual appeal or taste pizaaz to be sampled by very many people at a potluck. I added mandarin oranges the 2nd day (pineapple tidbits would also have worked) and it both looked and tasted better, although it was still probably only an "8" on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest. A helpful hint: Brown the chicken until done in the same pan that you will use for the Rice-a-Roni. It provides added flavor to the dish and simplifies cleanup.
I made this last night to go with a barbequed pork tenerloin and it was great. It had a great blend of flavors with added crunch. My son loves shrimp so next time I'm going to try it with shrimp. I'm having a barbeque party next month and with definitely make this as a side dish. Thanks for the great recipe.
I work for a caterer and we make a salad like this only we add marinated artichoke hearts with some of the juice, red, green, and yellow bell peppers, cashews and some curry powder to our recipe. It is great!!
A light and easy salad with wild rice mix, chicken, grapes, and cashews makes a nice lunch or a light supper when it's hot outside. Bring it to a potluck or picnic.
Rice, artichokes, spinach, chicken, mushrooms, and pine nuts come together with lemony dressing to make this recipe for delicious warm salad.
Avocado, tomato, and brown rice are tossed with cucumber, Kalamata olives, chopped mint, and crumbled feta cheese in this tasty salad.
This is a crunchy chicken and rice salad with an East Indian influence.
