I had an amazing rice salad on Christmas day and it has inspired me to make one.
Could you please share your favorite rice salad recipe.

I'll be watching this thread with interest.
While not actually a rice salad, one of my favourite salads is one made with pearl barley.
I'll look it up in the morning and post it.

I have made this:
Red and green capsicum
Mix all together. It is very basic and although it tastes nice I am sure there is a yummier version out there

Brown rice, shallots, red capsicum, toasted cashews, toasted pine nuts, currants.
Dressing is soy sauce (best with salt reduced) sunflower oil and garlic.
I make this often and am forever getting told how good it is. I will say we love it.

The pearl barley salad Imentioned. You could easily substitute brown rice for the barley.
1/4 Kent pumpkin, cut into 3cm cubes and roasted in a 180 degree oven for 20-30mins
250g pearl barley, boiled for 25mins and drained
200g green beans, blanched
2 spring onions, finely sliced
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
50g baby spinach or rocket
3 tblspns chopped mint
4 tblspns chopped parsley
100g fetta, crumbled
60ml Olive oil
40 ml Red wine vinegar
1 tblspn honey
Salt and pepper
(garlic and chilli can be added, but are optional)

brown rice, stir through some balsamic and olive oil and leave for 20 mins.
Then add whatever you like! I add tuna, tomatoes, corn and rocket usually.

Oh yum! I always make a curried rice salad as above (which is very yummy) so looking forward to trying these.

cooked basmati rice, a few dried figs chopped up, roasted walnuts, thinly sliced roasted carrots & dill. The dressing is just olive oil & red wine vinagrette...

A simple brown rice salad:
A couple of cups of cooked brown rice (cooled)
1/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
2-3 Tbsp Olive oil
1/4 cup currents
bunch flat leaf parsley (chopped)
handful pine nuts
few shakes of ground black pepper
Add rice to juice/oil combo (rice will soak it up) & then combine all other ingredients. Very easy & you can always chuck in other ingredients (diced red capsicum/can corn/etc).

This dish is seriously one of the yummiest things I've ever eaten and always gets devoured every time I make it.
Brown Rice with Sweet Potato and Chickpeas and a Tahini-Yoghurt dressing
1 large sweet potato
1 red onion, cut into wedges
1 400g can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
Big bunch of rocket leaves
Bunch of fresh coriander
1/3 cup lightly toasted slivered almonds
1 cup brown rice
1/3 cup currants
3 tsp cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp tumeric
For the dressing:
160ml natural greek yoghurt
juice of 1 lemon
1 garlic clove minced
Cook the brown rice (usually 2 cups of water to 1 cup of rice) and add a teaspoon of cumin to the saucepan. Bring to the boil for 1 minute then cover and simmer for about 35 mins. Leave to sit with the lid on.
Meanwhile put the sweet potato, chickpeas and red onion in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season well. Mix up the other spices in a bowl then add to the sweet potato mixture. Combine well until all ingredients are well coated. Lay out in a single layer in a baking dish - or two dishes if required. Bake for 20-30 mins until sweet potato tender.
Toast the almonds in a dry fry pan for a minute or two then set aside.
For the dressing, combine all the ingredients in a bowl. You may want to add some water to thin the dressing out or add more tahini/lemon as per taste.
Combine the rice, sweet potato mixture, toasted almonds, currants, rocket, fresh coriander in a bowl and serve with the dressing on the side.

Thanks for link to the Exclusively Food recipe PP. Just had it for dinner tonight and was very tasty!
(We have very limited kitchen facilities at the moment due to renovation and was running out of ideas)

I use this rice salad recipe. It's very tasty and a favourite among friends. You can easily make it a day ahead.
Sometimes I make do without a recipe. Cook rice and let it cool enough to handle, then add the dressing, herbs and garnishes. Then add your favourite meat or veggies - capsicum, lettuce, peas, etc. As with salads, there's lots of variations you can try, and you can make the rice stand out or just, you know, another ingredient in the salad.
