Directions

Bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the rice and return to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Spread out the rice on a baking sheet and let cool 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk together the vinegar, honey and sesame oil in a large bowl. Stir in the rice, cranberries, dates, parsley, scallions and pecans and toss well to coat.

    OMGoodness is this good and it is NOT hard to make!! The simpler the better in my opinion. This is a breeze to make and everybody loves it!
    I am a sucker for any recipe with cranberries and that's what attracted me to this recipe and i am sooo glad I found it. Great for company or a church dinner-(if your church is like mine you will definitely have to multiply the recipe Thanks Bobby!!!
