Method

  1. Whisk together the dressing ingredients, season, then set aside. Heat a small nonstick pan and put in the cashew nuts, stirring for a few mins, until starting to brown.
  2. Toss the rice, peppers, onion and most of the cashews together, then gently fold in the dressing. Chill for up to a day, then scatter with the remaining cashews before serving.

My boyfriend loved it and I thought it was a great dish, even though I forgot the herbs. I didn't see that it was supposed to cool and be served cold, but it was nice anyway!

BEWARE - this recipe isn't printed accurately......how can it be fruity when there is no fruit listed in the ingredients?? They've missed off the sultanas!!

Excellent! This is a firm family favourite, although I have to admit leaving out the cashews. The children have whats left in their lunchboxes the next day - they love it!
