Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Chilling time: 1 hour
METHOD: Place the rice in a large bowl. Add the green onions and spinach. Mix well. Add the orange segments and water chestnuts. Toss gently to mix.
Mix the dressing and soy sauce. Pour over the salad. Stir in the avocado, if desired. Cover and chill for 1 hour before serving.
HINT: This salad should be served about 1 hour after preparing it. It becomes soggy after sitting for too long, although we have eaten some leftovers the next day and the flavor was still delicious.
