This is my mum's recipe - I have no idea where she got it from but it is very unusual and very loved original.gif

Curry Rice Salad

2 cups cooked rice (use whatever you like but mum uses short grain white rice)
1 Tablespoon sultanas (or add more if you like them)
1 green or red apple, diced - skin on.
3 spring onions finely sliced
1 green capsicum diced
Cashews and Parsley to your taste

Mix together in a jar:
1/2 cup salad oil (anything light - I usually use about 1/2 that quantity though)
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 crushed clove of garlic
1 desertspoon curry powder
salt and pepper
SHAKE like crazy and pour over salad.

mine is brown rice, capsicum, currants, sunflower seeds, cashews, spring onions,
with a dressing of oil, lemon juice and soy sauce. Left to marinate for a few hours and it is soooo tasty. Plus I also add a few drops of sesame oil, cos I like that too
(about 1/4 cup oil- I use sunflower oil to 1/2 cup soy I think)

I reckon I have the absolute to die for brown rice salad recipe (don't know what the sizzler one is though). I think it is from an old Margaret Fulton recipe book, but it is a family favourite and every time we take it somewhere the recipe is asked for (except for some reason no-one else makes it as good) and everyone goes back for seconds. I am a lousy cook generally that is why I like to brag about one of my rare successes!! It is very similiar to the previous one, but the dressing is the magic bit and if not quite right falls flat! Also the almonds are essential for that nutty flavour, parsley is also a key ingred.

Brown Rice Salad......
1.5 cups of cooked brown rice (not that quick one though)
6 spring onions, chopped
Red capsicum, diced
1 cup sultanas (juicy ones)
60g almonds (roasted then chopped)
cracked black pepper
6 tblsp soy sauce dressing (see below)
2 tblsp chopped parsley (or lots more if you have it)

Soy Sauce Dressing..... (best made day before and left to marinate in jar in fridge before adding to salad)
1/2 cup olive oil
3 tblsp soy sauce
2 tblsp lemon juice
1 clove garlic, crushed
1cm piece of ginger, finely chopped
salt and pepper

I have made this a few times and it is very nice and a bit different. It uses the quick rice in the brown packet.
