    Mirj's Note:

    I found this recipe in the weekend paper. It's a great way to use up leftover chicken, or you can poach a chicken breast just for the recipe, it's that good.

    1. 1
      Bring enough water to cook the rice to a boil in a large saucepan and add about a teapoon of salt.
    2. 2
      Add the rice, and cook until al dente, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes.
    3. 3
      Drain well.
    4. 4
      While the rice is cooking, whisk the vinegar and 2 tablespoons of the oil together.
    5. 5
      While the rice is still warm, mix in the dressing and set aside.
    6. 6
      Heat some of the remaining oil in a small pan.
    7. 7
      Beat the egg and add to make a thin omelet, moving in the sides of the firmed egg as it cooks to allow firming without turning over.
    8. 8
      When the omelet is fully cooked, remove from flame and chop into small pieces.
    9. 9
      Season with salt and freshly ground pepper and add to the seasoned rice.
    10. 10
      Add the diced chicken, the peas, the chopped onion and parsley to the rice and, with two forks, mix well.
    11. 11
      If the salad seems too dry, add some more olive oil.
    12. 12
      Taste, and season with some more salt and freshly ground pepper.
    13. 13
      Serve at room temperature on a bed of salad, surrounded by the tomato wedges.

      I cut the recipe in half for the two of us and used 1 1/2 cups steamed rice. Wonderful fresh flavor from the parsley and just the right amount of vinegar. I skipped the chicken and we did not miss it. Beth Elon knew what she was doing when she created this salad. Thanks Mirj for sharing this wonderful salad!
