    Method

Directions

Serves 8-10 as an accompaniement to grilled/barbecued meat

1. Cook rice in salted water until tender. Drain.
2. Chop onions & capsicum finely. Add to rice (while still warm)
3. Add nuts, parsley, currants - and stir.
4. Just before serving, add dressing.

TIPS
I use raw cashew nuts that I toast in a dry heavy-based frying pan. You could use any choice of nuts and seeds to give the salad crunch.

I have also substituted coriander (cilantro) for the flat leaf parsley which works wonderfully

I generally add more than 6 tablespoons of dressing, but you can add to your own personal tast
