    Can anyone suggest a good spanish rice to buy? Or is it better to try and make it? Not sure how to do that.

    1 T. White Balsamic Vinegar
    1 T. Apple Cider Vinegar
    1 T. Garlic Powder
    1 T. Onion Powder
    1 1/2 t. Dijon Mustard
    3 T. Organic Frozen Applejuice Concentrate

    (Makes 4 servings)

    Serve on a salad of Romain, red onion, tomato, pecans, dried apple chips and Gorgonzola cheese.
