Notes: Hominy Grill on Rutledge Avenue, Charleston, SC. "Wehani rice and avocado salad. Wehani rice is a hybrid of brown rices developed at Lundberg Family Farms in California (www.lundberg.com). It's a light clay color and splits a little when cooked. 'Wehani rice is nutty and unhulled, kind of chewy, and it has some texture to it,' Stehling says. It's a nice pairing with the smooth, cool avocado." -- AB Hanneman: Recipes provided by "Ann Burger" <www.charleston.net/> on July 30, 1997, converted by MC_Buster.
