An outstanding rice salad!!! And healthy too. I didn't use the full quantity of pine nuts. They are such and astronomical price here, so I probably used around 75gms. I also didn't add heaps of salt and pepper as I cooked the rice in salted water and when the flavour of the caramelized onion blended through I didn't think it needed any extra seasoning. Made and enjoyed by DH, DS, his girlfriend and myself.
