Simple to make and tasty. This salad is especially beautiful when presented in a clear glass bowl so you can see all the layers. A great make-ahead dish for entertaining, barbecues, or pot-lucks.

A mixture of Parmesan cheese and wheat germ top off this healthy brown rice and spinach side dish, giving it a more nutritional and flavorful alternative to the ‘typical’ breadcrumb topping. I have had this in my recipe box for at least 20 years and usually serve it with fish and fresh sliced tomato for a colorful complete meal.
