Our Himalayan Red Rice is a whole-grain red rice from Southeast Asia. Its long grains have a rich red color, nutty flavor and slightly chewy texture. The rice pairs well with both crispy-tart and sweet foods, and this recipe features both: the crisp, clean taste of cucumber and fennel, and the sweet flavor of grapes and tart cherries.
