Some Helpful tips:

Brown rice is probably my favorite grain. It is very nutty and I love the nice bite of the grain. However, it takes longer to make than regular rice. If you don’t have the time to cook brown rice, regular white rice would work just fine. You can even use left over rice! Also, there are some other grains that would work great in this recipe: quinoa, farro and barely. Or…you can make this a grain free recipe! Just skip the grains and serve this salad as a lovely Asian inspired slaw.

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
