This tropical rice peanut salad is INSANELY good. It’s the easiest dish to make, and honestly, I could eat an entire bowl of it….it’s just THAT delicious! The flavor is off the charts, and it’s very refreshing. I love to serve this dish with barbecue sandwiches in the summertime. This simple salad makes a wonderful addition to any potluck, brunch, or lunch. It’s fancy enough for a special occasion, but it’s also perfect for a weeknight dinner. The peanuts, pineapple, oranges, and onions go together SO well. I can’t recommend this easy side dish enough.
