DIRECTIONS

  • Cook potato, cauliflower and peas, if necessary.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
