Place rice in a medium saucepan with 6 cups of cold water. Cover, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until tender, about 35 to 40 minutes. When rice is tender, drain thoroughly.
While rice is cooking, remove rind (both zest and white pith) from oranges to expose flesh. Working over a bowl to catch the juices, make v-shape cuts to remove individual orange segments from membranes. Set segments aside until needed. Measure juice collected in work bowl to equal 1 1/2 tablespoon.
Whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, orange juice, and hot pepper sauce. Pour this over cooked rice and stir to combine. Cool rice mixture completely.
Combine cooled rice, orange segments, green onions, and chopped parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Adjust the flavor with additional balsamic or orange juice as desired. Mound salad on a platter or in a bowl, and garnish with parsley sprigs.
