This is out of New Idea as a lunch box dish. They recommend it can be made up to 2 days ahead and then kept in an air tight container in the fridge. Times for preparation and cooking are estimates.

  2. While rice is cooking -.
  3. Finely slice spring onions (scallions), finely chop ham, finely chop red capsicum (bell pepper).
  4. Drain corn kernels and rinse and drain. Drain pineapple (reserve juice for another use).
  5. Combine cooked rice, spring onions, ham, capsicum, carrot, corn and pineapple in a large bowl.
  6. Combine soy sauce and honey in a small bowl, whisk until blended.
  7. Pour sauce mixture over salad until well combined.

This was a very different salad for me! I love all the ingredients! It is so colorful and beautiful. I did use green bell peppers instead of red bell peppers, since that was what I had on hand. This is perfect for a hot summer day, and I'm sure I'll make this in the future as an alternative to "lettuce" salads. I did use fresh pineapple and corn cut off the cob instead of canned. Just a personal preference. Thanks for sharing! Made for PRMR tag.

This was a nice salad for our lunch. Made a serving for two and it was perfect for DH and I along with some bread rolls. I made as is (leaving out peppers) and think it could use a little more dressing/sauce so will make that adjustment next time. Made for Recipe Swap #45.
