                         ***SALAD***
    2      cups          cooked black beans -- drained
    3      cups          cooked brown rice
    2                    celery stalks -- finely chopped
                         ***DRESSING***
    1      teaspoon      ground coriander
    2      teaspoons     ground cumin
      1/2  cup           chopped scallions
    2      tablespoons   chopped fresh cilantro -- or less to taste
      1/2  cup           orange juice
    1 1/2  tablespoons   cider vinegar
    3      tablespoons   Italian salad dressing, fat free
    2      teaspoons     grated orange peel -- fresh
    2      tablespoons   chopped fresh parsley
      1/2  teaspoon      cinnamon
                         salt and ground black pepper -- to taste
                         ***GARNISH***
                         fresh cilantro
                         OR parsley leaves
 
 Variation from the original:  I substituted fatfree Italian salad dressing
 for the olive oil and eliminated the spanish olives and the roasted walnut
 garnish.
 
 In a mixing bowl, combine the drained beans with the rice, and celery.  In
 a small bowl, whisk together all of the dressing ingredients.  Pour the
 dressing over the beans and rice mixture, and stir thoroughly.
 
 Top with the cilantro or parsley.
