Tired of potato and macaroni salads for picnics and outings. This rice salad is a great alternative. It is light and has fewer calories than mayo based cold salads.

What a refreshing salad! The cranberry and orange add a nice zing. This is perfect for a potluck or picnic. This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled for a large crowd. Yummy! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
