Better Than Potato Salad

This takes 1/4th the time it takes to make potato salad; maybe even less than that. And it's SOOOO good. When you don't want to fuss with making a huge salad, try this. It's quick. It's fast. It's delish.

Better Than Potato Salad

4 cups cooked long grain rice
8 radishes, sliced
4 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
1 medium cucumber, seeded and chopped
2 cups thinly sliced celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
1-1/2 cups mayonnaise
3 tablespoons prepared mustard
3/4 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl, combine rice, radishes, eggs, cucumber, celery and onion. Combine mayonnaise, mustard and salt; mix well.
Pour over rice mixture and toss. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour. Yield: 12-14 servings.

UPDATE: I used instant brown rice instead of long grain rice and it turned out just fine!
