    1. Variation from the original: I substituted fatfree Italian salad dressing for the extra virgin olive oil and eliminated the spanish olives and the roasted walnut garnish.
    2. In a mixing bowl, combine the liquid removed beans with the rice, and celery. In a small bowl, whisk together all of the dressing ingredients. Pour the dressing over the beans and rice mix, and stir thoroughly.
    3. Top with the cilantro or possibly parsley.
