Versatile Brown Rice Salad

I make this quite often for pot-lucks. My circle of Friends includes vegetarians, and people with allergies to gluten, dairy and onions. It makes coming up with something everyone can eat and will like a bit of a challenge. However this goes over well even with those who have no food restrictions. It's very flexible; I hardly ever put in everything I have listed, and you can certainly put in other fruits and vegetables as seems good to you. Don't be put off by the length of the ingredients and instructions; it's really very easy especially if you cook the grains the night before. I typically stagger, bleary-eyed, into the kitchen at the last possible moment and have it put together in half an hour. If you don't mix in the seeds, the salad will keep well for several days in the fridge. (It will still keep if you mix in the seeds, they will just get a little soggy.) Also, remember that barley is not gluten free. Instead of the red rice, wild rice or barley you can also just use a second 1/2 cup of brown rice.
