Looking for a tasty side to spice up your evening meals ? This spicy rice salad looks as good as it tastes, and was one of three recipes that won me a fridge in a competition run by the ever popular Super Food Ideas magazine (read about that here)

This Curried rice salad is a family favorite, and is my choice of dish to bring to gatherings when you are asked to bring a plate.

I hope that if you give it a whirl, you will enjoy it to !

Ingredients :

2 cups of cooked long grain rice, chilled
1 apple peeled, cored, chopped
1 red onion finely chopped
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup flat-leafed parsley, chopped

Dressing :

1/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup white vinegar
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 tablespoon caster sugar
1 garlic clove crushed

Method :

Combine chilled rice, apple, red onion, raisins and flat-leafed parsley well.

Put all dressing ingredients together into a blender or manual shaker and mix well.
Pour dressing mixture into the rice mix and gently stir to combine.

Salad will keep fresh in a tightly sealed container for 3 days.....
