Someone at work tried this recipe last weekend and asked me how to lower
the fat, so I made this fatfree version last night and we enjoyed it.

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   2      cups          cooked black beans -- drained
   3      cups          cooked brown rice
   2                    celery stalks -- finely chopped
   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
                        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

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.
