Instructions
 

  • #Simple, easy, and tasty. The dominating taste of sun-dried tomatoes and the spices in the dressing – what a great combo with the mellow taste of rice. I love the tart fruits tossed into rice or pasta salads. Choose unripe apricots, plums, peaches or mangoes. Serve this salad slightly warm accompanied by a big bowl of green salad – a gorgeous idea for a summer dinner around the table with family. And how about sipping a glass of chilled white wine with your dinner? Cheers!# Make the dressing first. Whisk ingredients in a bowl and let rest for a quarter of an hour while preparing the rice.
  • Reconstitute dried tomatoes and chop to desired size.
  • Flake rice with a fork and add all other ingredients except fresh coriander or parsley.
  • Add the dressing and mix until well blended. Correct seasoning.
  • Sprinkle in the chopped up greens and mix once more.
