Yummy Rice-a-Roni Salad Recipe

Rice-a-Roni Salad is a great side dish to go with dinner, or makes a great lunch all on its own.  It’s also a terrific potluck dish.  I love that I can make it ahead of time and just whip it out of the fridge at dinner time.


Mayo and Worcestershire sauce make a nippy dressing on this rice and chicken salad.  It also has a great crunch from the water chestnuts, almonds, and celery.  If you like chicken salad, you’ll love this recipe.  So, so good.

1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds
