Brown Rice Dilemma

I, too, cannot stomach brown rice.  I make this salad (recipe to follow)
that my mom found which call for white rice and I make it half brown and
half white.  This seems to help and then at least half of it is more
healthy.  I would guess that this would work in many recipes.

Rice and Bean Salad
1/2 c veggie broth (recipe calls for Ch****n)
1 T peeled, grated gingerroot (I don't care for ginger and omit this)
1 t minced garlic
1/4 c white-wine vinegar (I just use white vinegar)
1/2 t each hot pepper sauce and salt

3 c cooked rice
1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 large European cucumber, quartered lengthwise and cut into 1/4 in
thick slices (I just use regular cucumbers as they are cheaper - don't
knowq what the difference is)
1/2 c diced red bell pepper (green works too)
1/3 cup sliced scallions
1 T olive oil ( I omit)

Dressing:  In small saucepan, bring broth, ginger, garlic to a boil. 
Stir in vinegar, pepper sauce and salt.
Salad:  In a large bowl, mix all ingredients.  Add dressing.  Cover and
chill for up to 6 hours.  Stir well before serving.
