I think the brown rice would work nicely. Just last weekend I used brown rice in a cold salad that I brought to a barbeque. I roasted a few chicken breasts, then diced the meat, and added it to the cooked rice with some shredded carrots and finely diced fennel. I dressed it with a citrus vinaigrette. I made the dish a day ahead and was very worried about how it might go over since most of the guests were not on a gluten-free diet. Everybody loved it. I think the flavor profiles that you mentioned (tomatoes, cucumbers, & basil) would taste even better than what I put together. Go for it, the brown rice will hold up perfectly even if made a day in advance.

I made a cold salad with cukes, tomatoes, basil & vinaigrette. I used the Lundberg rice mix. It has several different rice in it & has a mice nutty flavor. Tasty tomatoes really made it good!

Have tried everything and never found a good substitute for orzo or philo for that matter. the Would like to see how its made in greece so we could try to duplicate the orzo shape with other gluten-free flours.
