Description

Fresh and vibrant flavors of the Orient combine with the down-home spices from Italy in this light and appetizing salad. Thai basil and crushed peanuts brighten up the subtleness of steamed rice while coriander and green onions tone down the tangy notes, perfectly balancing the sweet and the savory. Enjoy bursts of pungent fruit and herbs mellowed by the absorbency of rice. Satisfy your hunger without feeling overly full. Asian-Italian fusion cuisine at its best.
