Was this ever good! Ate the leftovers for breakfast. I used the recommended vinaigrette recipe, which was crucial to the taste. I made no changes to this recipe at all.
Excellent dish. My daughter really enjoyed the heat in this rice recipe. I also used your Vinaigrette to go with it. Made for Cajun Photo Forum Event.
I made this to serve alongside baked tilapia and thought it a flavorful side dish. It is very colorful & spicy. I enjoyed the heat level especially paired with a mild entree. I did use Lindas Creole Vinaigrette and Lindas Cajun Spice Mix. Made for Fall '09 Pick A Chef.
