I love rice and I am one of those Colombians who are happy eating plain white rice with a fried egg on top and sweet plantains on the side. Maybe that doesn’t sound very appealing to most, but it doesn’t take much to make me happy, as long as I am eating Colombian style
This rice salad is the perfect accompaniment for grilled meats and could also be served as a vegetarian meal.
- 1 cup cooked white rice
- ¼ dried apricots
- ½ cup toasted pine nuts
- ¼ cup dried cranberries
- ¼ cup raisins
- 1 scallion, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- Juice of 1 lime
- ½ tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
- Salt and black pepper
Whisk together olive oil, lime juice, honey and mustard in a medium bowl. Add the cooked rice, apricots, pine nuts, cranberries, cilantro, raisins and scallions, and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
