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.
“I modified a recipe I received years ago and came up with this versatile salad. It's refreshing served cold on a hot day, but its equally tasty at room temperature or warmed in the microwave.”
