Black Rice Salad with Miso Dressing
Save time by using pre-shredded carrots and frozen edamame. If black rice is hard to find at your local grocery store, brown or wild rice will make solid substitutes. If cilantro is a battleground ingredient in your house, serve it on the side so diners can enjoy it to taste.
