Brown Rice Cranberry Almond Cilantro Medley

What you need: 

1 cup brown basmati rice, 1/2 cup long grain brown rice, and 1/2 cup wild rice (or just use one package of Trader Joe's California Rice Trilogy or Brown Rice Medley)
1 1/3 cup of chopped raw almonds
12 chopped green onions
3/4 cup dried cranberries
1 bunch of chopped cilantro (equal to 3 or 4 cups)
1/2 cup canola oil
4 tablespoon raw cider vinegar
4 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
4 tablespoon maple syrup
1/4 cup soy sauce (or Bragg's Liquid Amino Acids)
1 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper + 1/2 teaspoon salt

What you do: 

Cook the rice according to instructions. After rinsing and cooling the rice, place all three kinds of rice into a large bowl. Add the almonds, green onions, dried cranberries and cilantro. In a separate bowl combine the canola oil, cider vinegar, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, soy sauce, black pepper and salt. Mix this dressing together before adding to the rice and other dry ingredients. Pour the dressing over the dry ingredients and combine thoroughly. Add other ingredients to taste. It's best to let the salad sit in the refrigerator for about an hour before serving to allow the dressing to really soak into the rice and other ingredients.

Delish!  We love this recipe and make up a large batch to refrigerate and eat over a day or two. Sealed
