  • 2 c. Cooked black beans, liquid removed
  • 3 c. Cooked brown rice
  • 2 x Celery stalks, finely minced
  • 1 tsp Grnd coriander
  • 2 tsp Grnd cumin
  • 1/2 c. Minced scallions
  • 2 Tbsp. Minced fresh cilantro, or possibly less to taste
  • 1/2 c. Orange juice
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. Cider vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp. Italian salad dressing, fat free
  • 2 tsp Grated orange peel, fresh
  • 2 Tbsp. Minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon Salt and grnd black pepper, to taste Fresh cilantro Or possibly parsley leaves


  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.
