Black Beans Rice Salad with Walnuts and Jalapenos

On with 0 Comment
Generally, rice is not included in a salad preparation. The following recipe not only uses rice, but also blends it with other interesting ingredients to make a unique combination that's as good as the main course. You must take short unpolished rice for this salad and must soak it overnight to get the best results. Although I've only added walnuts to this recipe, you can make it richer and crunchy by adding shredded or salted almonds. I've also added fresh Mexican jalapenos to this recipe. This adds some spice to the salad. You can also use boiled red beans instead of black beans for this salad. This recipe goes very well with hot stews and other meat preparations having thick and spicy gravy.
