*Make your own kefir.
The night before you make this salad, soak your rice.
This would also be a great recipe to use up leftover rice.
Soak 2-1/2 cups of brown rice in 5 cups of warm water and 5 tablespoons of whey for at least 7 hours.
Drain off the liquid and combine the rice, 4-1/2 cups of water, and a couple pinches of salt in a large sauce pan.
Bring to a boil.
Turn down heat.
Allow to simmer for about 40 minutes.
Check toward the end of cooking time to see if all the liquid has been absorbed.
If so, fluff with fork, and allow to cool uncovered.
