Summer rice salad with a kick

Made this last night for a family picnic at the lake. Turned out pretty well. I think artichokes would be good here, and capers. I did't have either at the time. Olives would be good too. Love smoked paprika. You can find it at World Market stores, maybe on line too at William Sonoma? Let me know what you think!! :D
