Brown Rice Salad - one of Mike's favorites

Brown Rice Salad

Really yummy, and super healthy. A great lunchtime salad! It
Is best if it sits a little so the dressing can soak in the rice.

3 cups cooked brown rice
1 Granny Smith apple, cut into pieces
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
½ bunch green onions
½ c. walnut pieces, toasted
1 cup chicken, cooked and cubed
3 T. fresh parsley, chopped

Mix the above together, and toss with dressing:

¼ cup apple cider vinegar
2 T. lemon juice
3 T. olive oil

As usual, mix vinegar and lemon juice (acids) and drizzle in the oil to emulsify. Then add the salt and pepper to taste.
