Fiesta Rice and Shrimp Salad

GOYA® Fiesta Rice Meets a Healthy Shrimp Recipe!

GOYA® Fiesta Rice is a festive mix of long grain and wild rices, peas, corn, and zesty spices simmered in savory chicken broth. On its own, it's a delicious accompaniment to meats and seafood. But don't stop there: It has all the right flavors for a zesty summer rice salad -- with a Latin twist.

Just add fresh shrimp, herbs, veggies, GOYA® Fancy Pimientos, and GOYA® Manzanilla Olives. Splash on a tangy lemon dressing for a quick, fiesta rice recipe that’s light in calories and long on flavor.
