Cajun Recipes: Cajun Rice Salad

This is a great Cajun recipe for a creamy salad. It goes well with cookouts, picnics, bbq cooking, and just about everything else. It’s very similar to potato salad, but in some ways, this is better. Why? Because you’ll have a lot more surface area with rice than you’ll have with cubed potatoes, and that means more flavor! Use my Cajun seasoning recipe for this. The recipe calls for 2 teaspoons, but I usually add more.
