NOTES: You can find Forbidden (black) rice at Whole Foods. This salad was amazing - the rice is nutty and hearty and a little bitter and sweet. Combined with the sweet fruit, the spicy pepper and the exotic fish sauce, it was a real hit. It's also very, very pretty. We will make this one again, for sure.
