Crunchy Rice Salad is one of those recipes that comes to mind first when I am making food for a cookout or pot luck meal. There are a few reasons for this. It is really simple to make, tastes absolutely delicious and I can usually make it up with ingredients I have in the house, so I don’t need to make a special trip to the store. Bonus! 

To make this salad, I start by cooking rice according to the directions on the package. Then I assemble the rest of the salad ingredients and whip up a simple dressing from mustard, mayo and lemon juice. I mix everything together and there you have it. A delicious salad in only 35 minutes. 

To make my version of Crunchy Rice Salad, you will need the following ingredients:
