One of my family's favorite salads! Prep time does not include cooking the rice. This needs to chill for minumum of 3 hours before serving, so plan ahead. Please don't leave out the pimientos, this is really what brings out the flavor in this salad. I have even added in crumbled feta cheese or cubed cheddar cheese, but that is optional. All ingredients can be adjusted to suit taste. Recipe may be doubled if desired.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients; mix to combine.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the mayo, relish, salad dressing, salt and pepper; add to the rice mixture; stir to combine well.
  3. Chill in the fridge for 3 or more hours before serving.

My surrogate mom used to make this for Christmas parties but she didn't out any eggs in it - instead she put water chestnuts. And it was yummy!

My best friend's mom makes this for picnics and it is delicious! A nice change from the usual picnic salads. She uses only 2 tbsp or so of the French dressing. I must agree about the pimientos....don't skip them! Next time we have all that leftover rice from the Chinese takeout, I'm making this!
