My entire family loves this salad—especially when I fix it with fresh-picked sweet corn. The summery ingredients and fragrant cilantro make it a good match for a barbecued main course. —Diane Lynch, Sugar Grove, Illinois
Rice blends with walnuts, onions, chopped apple and a curried lemon dressing in this versatile salad. It could be a main luncheon salad in warm weather or a change-of-pace complement to a poultry or fish dinner any time of year.
"A close friend shared this make-ahead recipe that starts with a packaged rice mix," notes Sonja Blow of Groveland, California. Curry and artichoke hearts give it a flavorful change of pace that's welcome at a picnic or potluck.
