Brown rice is becoming more popular as the healthy rice option. It can be found in a wide range of modern and traditional recipes, like brown rice pilaf, brown rice salad and brown rice bread loaf.
The avocado makes the dressing a little creamy though feel free to leave it out if you wish. Best made the same day you are going to serve it.
