Eaten on a regular basis in the context of a Mediterranean diet, rice can help us to maintain, promote and retrieve a good state of physical and mental well-being. Brown rice (whose grain is not deprived of the outer husk, high in fiber and nutrients) rich in carbohydrates, fiber and B vitamins.

I will admit that when I first saw this recipe I was a little bit leary about trying it out. However, this is one of the best salads I have ever eaten. The mixture of cheese, salmon, and pineapple was to die for. The salmon was moist while the pineapple was nice and juicy. I used only fresh ingredients and could not ask for a better 5 star salad. I plan to make this again tomorrow.
