Ingredients

    Tu B’Sheba- Rifunu Salad
    1-1/4 c. regular raw brown rice
    ½ c. coarsely chopped pitted dates
    ½ c. pecan or walnut pieces
    ¼ c. thinly sliced scallions
    2 T. chopped fresh parsley
    1-2 t. chopped dried mint leaves
    2 T. lemon juice
    1 T. vinegar
    3 T. olive oil or vegetable oil
    ¼ t. cinnamon
    1/8 t. ground ginger
    1 (approx. 11 oz.) can drained mandarin oranges, or 1 c. peeled orange or tangerine sections




Directions

In medium saucepan, bring 2-1/4 c. water to a boil. Add rice, cover tightly, reduce heat to low and simmer for 35-40 minutes or until all water is absorbed.

A faster way can be to place 2.5 cups of water in a mircro-wave bowl (preferably glass); stir in 1.25 cups of rice and microwave (uncovered) for 15-20 minutes.

Add to the rice the chopped dates, nuts, onions, scallions, olives, parsley, and mint.

In a small glass bowl, combine lemon juice, vinegar (apple cider), oil, cinnamon, and ginger. Pour over rice mixture and fluff with a fork until mixed. Add sections of oranges. Serve on a platter and garnish with left over pieces of orange/dates/pecans, etc.
