AB calls it Brown Rice Salad

I made a simplified version of Alton Brown’s Brown Rice Salad last night. I’d more likely call it a side dish- maybe Bacon Brown Rice. It was very good and nicely different. DH didn’t care for it as much as I did. He thought it was too vinegary but then he had his without the fried onions and they really cut the twang. This is a good time to use brown rice instead of white- you can’t tell in this recipe! Leftovers make a good lunch.
6 slices bacon
1 small onion sliced into half circles
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 t dijon mustard
1 t Splenda (or Sugar)
1/2 t black pepper
2 pouches Uncle Ben’s “Ready Rice”
Fry bacon and set it aside to cool. Pour out all but 1 tablespoon drippings. Fry onions in remaining grease til edges are golden (about 5 min). Add remaining ingredients plus crumble the crisp bacon and add it too. Cook stirring often until the liquid is absorbed and serve warm.
