2 green onions, finely sliced
a handful (or more) of cherry tomatoes, halved
1 tsb parsely, chopped

directions:
1) cook brown rice and kidney beans in vegetable stock.  let completely cool when finished
2)  in a separate bowl, whisk the olive oil, garlic, lime juice, red wine vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper.
3)  when rice is completely cooled add tomatoes, onions, and parsley.  toss in dressing (to your tasting)and serve chilled (i personally like it warm!).
