Spanish Rice Salade


It has been a very busy week, and health wise not good too.
Have been having such a severe Migraine, I think I have taken so much pills in this last week and on top of it, had a Memorial Concert here for WW1 so feeling good or not had to be busy for that.
Must admit had bad days and good days.
Have been trying to keep away from the computer, I don't think that was possible as temptation to check facebook was there so I did go there to see what is happening with friends and family :-)
So as I mentioned we had a memorial Concert for WW1 so
Posting a video of one of the music piece Shyama and Hans performed for the concert on Friday.



Now to the recipe, I think I must have made this dish atleast a year ago.
I have noticed latley I don't take any pictures of the dishes, I make so I had to go and look into my old file to see if I can post something, which is not a worry as I have so many pictures and recipes to post in my map.
This is a easy recipe, It is nice to serve this when you have a party as a salade etc.....as this dish is served cold. I mostly serve it when i do meat fondue or you can do when you have a barbacue.

250 gm cooked cold rice I used basmati
3/4 cup spring onions chopped ( didn't have so added red onions)
1 red paprika finley diced
225 gm tomatoes , skin removed, and seed removed chopped fine.
1/4 cup cooked corn
2 tbsp fresh corriander leaves chopped
1/4 cup pomegranate
For the dressing
5 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp vinegar
1 to 2 tsp Djon mustard paste
Salt and peper to taste
Add the rice into a large bowl, then add the spring onion, capsicul,tomatoes,corn, popegrante, and corriander.
Mix all the ingridients for the dressing in a small bowl and pour the dressing into the bowl with rice and veg.
Cover the salade for 1 hour in the fridge and then serve.
