Recipe by morgainegeiser

In this cool, light salad the sweetness of oranges mingles with the tang of lime and curry for a brillant change of pace. In India this would be served as a cooling side dish.

This is a mighty fine rice salad. I'm always skeptical about cold rice - just doesn't seem right to me, but this turned out FANTASTIC !! I did use wild rice instead of brown, as it is better overall for my diet, and followed the recipe as written other than that. Delicious - though my dish was not served chilled, but just about room temperature, as I was pressed for time. Definitely think this would be even better cold, so the leftovers will prove it one way or another. Thanks for posting morgainegeiser - we loved this. Made for ZWT8 and the Herbaceous Curvaceous Honeys.
