    Kumquat the Cat's friend's Note:

    Found several interesting looking rice salads in the NY Times on July 30, 2008 by Mark Bittman (the minimalist). He says rice salads are among the few salads that don't deteriorate after the dressing is added, so they can be dressed minutes or hours ahead. He recommends that you cook the rice a bit in advance, and dress it before it gets too cold. He also recommends that you cook the rice like a pasta, in abundant salted water (for between 15 and 45 minutes, depending on the rice) and then drain it and dress it when the rice is cool enough to handle. Cooking time is for white rice.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook potato, cauliflower and peas, if necessary.
    2. 2
      Cook rice in abundant salted water, as you would pasta, until it's just done; white will take 10-15 minutes, brown 30 minutes or more. Drain, rinse in cold water, drain again, then combine with vegetables in a large bowl.
    3. 3
      Combine black pepper, coconut milk, rice vinegar and curry powder in a blander and turn machine on; a creamy emulsion will form within 30 seconds. Taste and add more vinegar a teaspoon or two at a time until balance tastes right to you, then add more curry powder, salt or pepper, if needed.
    4. 4
      Drizzle vinaigrette over rice and vegetables. Use 2 big forks to combine, fluffing rice and tossing gently to separate grains. Stir in jalapeno if using and cilantro, taste and adjust seasoning or moisten with a little more dressing. Serve at room temperature, or refrigerate up to a day, bringing salad back to room temperature before serving.

      Very good! Not what I expected for being so simple. I used sweet potato as I was out of regular and it came out really well. I also roasted the cauliflower and I highly recommend that! Otherwise followed the recipe. I used brown rice and next time I think I'd go with white (I think white would absorb the dressing better) All and all I would make this again!

      Delicious. I added a Tbsp. of honey to the dressing for some sweetness.

      This is an excellent rice salad! I halved the recipe for a good 4 servings. Interesting cooking method for the rice! Used low-fat coconut milk, extra curry powder, no jalapeno, and had to sub green beans for the peas, which was still good. As I'm the only cilantro fan in the house, I left it out for my parents, but I was pleasantly surprised when even my dad really liked this dish! Thank you for posting!
