    Tulip-Fairy's Note:

    A rice salad that is an absolute must with left over turkey at Christmas.. this started out as a delia recipe but got edited along the way. In answer to Kumquat's review, you have to ground or mince the garlic up if you can't pound it up in a pestle and mortar.

      Wonderful combination of sweet and savory. I had every intention of making it exactly as written (with less oil), except I forgot to buy a red pepper and bought one 6 ounce box of rice instead of 12 ounces. So I made it with the ingredients I had available, and decreased the olive oil in the dressing to 1 tablespoon. Also, since I was afraid the apple would turn brown I added 1 tablespoon lemon juice to it after I cut it up. Then I added an extra tablespoon of vinegar because I really like tangy. This was so terrific I will have to make it again! The only slightly confusing part of the instructions was pounding the garlic with salt (with a mortar and pestle, I guess, which I don't have anyway) so I just minced the garlic and mixed it in. Nice vinaigrette that combined very well with the rest of the ingredients. I had leftovers for lunch, and the apples were still crunchy and kept their color. I am already looking forward to making this again. Thanks Tulip!
