    Engrossed's Note:

    From: "Whole Grains Every Day, Every Way" by Lorna Sass. "China meets the Southwest in this unusual fusion salad. Glistening Chinese black rice--usually sold under the label Forbidden Black Rice--set off against bright orange segments and avocado's pale green gives the mixture striking visual appeal." *Time does not include time it takes to cook rice.

      I made this recipe with some leftover black rice I had from a previous meal. This made a nice light lunch. The contrast of flavors was excellent.

      I love black rice! I once asked my cooking teacher about it and she said that when she grew up in China,only very wealthy people could afford it. Lucky for us,it's available in Asian markets ($2.39 for a huge bag at mine) and anyone who hasn't tried it should - wild rice would not be as good in this recipe or have the beautiful color contrast. I substituted mandarin oranges and also used juice from the can since sweet goes well with the black rice..it was a glorious combo with the chipotle. Tired of stir-fried veggies? This is a great alternative to serve with an Asian main dish.
