Fruchtiger Reis Salat – Juicy Rice Salad

Last year my friend Christine invited all her friends for her baby outing. She also asked her guests to bring a side while they would provide everything else.

I had to think for a while, not because I had no idea what to bring to a party, but because this family has all kinds of allergies: eggs, nuts, milk … the EpiPen is always on hand!

Finally I decided on a juicy Rice Salad – which would also be great if someone is on a gluten free diet.

The salad was a great succes and I must admit that I really enjoy prais for my food. I’ll probably bring the same salad again this year, just got the invitation! Though there will be no baby outing this time. And just if you wonder: The cake was pink  and a beautiful, sweet little girl joined my friends family. She has the biggest dark blue eyes I have ever seen on a baby, just adorable!

Ingredients
Servings: people
Instructions
  1. Put rice in a pan and add 500 ml water, 1 tsp. salt and 1 tbsp. butter.
  2. Bring rice to a boil and after about 1 minute boiling, turn off the heat (completely) but leave the pot on the hot stove for about 20 minutes. The rice should be just perfect after that.
  3. Let rice cool to room temperature.
  4. In a large bowl mix sugar and vinegar.
  5. Add the mayonnaise and mix well.
  6. Dice the onion really small and add to the bowl.
  7. Now dice the bell pepers very small and add tot the bowl.
  8. Drain the tangerines but keep the juice for later. If the tangerines are large, cut them in halves or thirds and add to the bowl.
  9. The corn is optional, I like it in there because it adds color and an additional taste. But don't use to much corn or it might cover the other flavors.
  10. Dice the ham really small and add to the bowl.
  11. Mix all well and add the cold rice. Now, stir carefully, you don't want to mash it! Also it is very important that the rice has fully cooled!
  12. Let stand in the fridge for at least 3 hours, better over night. Then season with a little salt (and pepper if needed). If the salad is very dry, add some of the tangerine juice!
  13. Cut the parsley very fine and add right before you serve.
Recipe Notes

Corn and parsley are optional.
