  • 1 cup salted cashew pieces

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • Directions

    In saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cups salted water to a boil. Add 3/4 cup rice, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Refrigerate rice until chilled. Combine chilled cooked rice, mushrooms, green peppers, red peppers, cashews, green onions, bean sprouts, spinach and celery in large bowl.

(Some who have tested this recipe do not add dressing till just before serving to prevent getting soggy.)
