Method

  1. Boil the rice in plenty of salted water until just cooked, about 30 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, make the dressing and prepare the other ingredients. Place the lemon zest and juice, and olive oil in a jam jar with a fitted lid. Add seasoning and the sugar and shake well. Drain cooled rice and tip into a large bowl. Pour the dressing over the warm rice and mix well. Let it soak in a little, then toss through the rest of the ingredients.

This is a great recipe - so different and with a good mix of flavours. I have it as a staple summer salad recipe.

Wonderful salad and so healthy, filling and easy to make! Just left out dill, cause I'm not a fan, but still, perfect!

What a fine simple and lively flavoured recipe that can be made quickly with a ready cooked chicken and looks tremendous on the plate. I couldn't find the red rice so used brown but it worked wonderfully.
Well done Jennifer Joyce
