Brown Rice & Black Bean Salad

This salad is super-simple to throw together and is packed with flavor and nutrients.  Have it as a side dish to some popcorn chicken with a selection of dipping sauces, or as a lunch.  It would go great at a party as it can sit at room temp very comfortably.  It has lots of color too.
