I have made a variation of this salad and I really love it. I use wild rice and soak it for about 24 hours. It never gets really soft like brown rice or other grains would, but it does get softer and it does sprout. I live in Miami, so the humidity and heat may have some effect on the time. Others, who live up North (Canada) have said it takes more like 48+ hours to get it to sprout.

I heard a tip about making wild rice soft. As far as I know wild rice doesn't sprout and I don't think it is raw either... but I like it so I will try out this tip I heard: Spin the rice around in a food processor before soaking and it will soak up the water better. Of course don't process it in there... but just nik it a little so the water has an easier time getting in there. For more info I heard that tip on the DVD "Raw for life". It was in the recipe section. Might be worth trying...

Have you tried brown rice? Also try brown Basmati rice. I've heard it tends to be more tender than regular brown rice...let me know if it works..
