From the South Beach Diet Quick and Easy cookbook: "This refreshing salad offers a great way to use up leftover rice, but since the rice cooks up so quickly anyway, it's well worth preparing just for this recipe. Serve it as a main course, as a salad, or in smaller portions, as a side for steak, chicken or fish."
Cook rice according to package directions. Remove from heat, spread on a plate, and refrigerate for 10 minutes to cool.
Mix rice with romaine, cucumber, tomato, scallions, oil, and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.
