Tasty fruity savoury rice salad. Ideal accompaniment for barbecued, grilled or baked meats & fish. My mum used to make this salad back home in Cape Town, South Africa when we had our braais (bbqs) & it was my favourite salad, crunchy & fruity but definitely savoury. yummy mummy!

Directions

  1. PREPARATION.
  2. Bring adequate (two cups?) amount of salted water to rolling boil, add rice, turmeric & raisins.
  3. Stir so that turmeric mixes into rice and can be absorbed, bring rice back to boil, then turn right down to simmer covered for rest of cooking time (10 - 12 minutes?).
  4. Once rice is cooked, rinse/drain; set aside to cool.
  5. Finely chop both green pepper & white onion.
  6. Chunky chop (not fine) half of the peaches from the can.
  7. Add pepper, onion, peaches, cayenne pepper/peri peri, chutney, mayonnaise, salt & pepper to rice turning ingredients into rice gently so as not to mash rice.
  8. Garnish with parsley.
  9. VARIATIONS.
  10. •Try adding 1/4 cup brown rice which would need cooking separately as it takes longer to cook. just stir into plain rice before adding other ingredients.
  11. •Using a tablespoon of either lemon or lime juice gives this dish a nice twist, or even try using lemon or lime rind for an extra zing.
