Fresh Pea Pod, Broccoli, & Rice Salad


From Asparagus to Zucchini

Ingredients

1 package (6 oz) long-grain and wild rice mix
1 1/2 cups chopped broccoli – chop up the stems as well
1/3 cup sliced green onions
1/4 cup bottled clear Italian salad dressing
1 TBS lemon juice
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
1 to 1 1/2 cups pea pods, trim off ends and cut in half
1/3 cup slivered almonds

Directions: Prepare rice mix according to package directions. Cool slightly. Steam broccoli until crunchy-tender. Toss with remaining ingredients. Original recipe calls for refrigeration before serving – but I prefer it warm as a side dish.
