Cold Rice Salad


I love a nice Cold Rice Salad in summer time. If I am making rice for a meal, I always double the amount so that I can use it to make this amazing summer salad. This is a real flavor sensation – it combines the sweetness of pineapple and sultanas with crunchy corn and capsicum.

It’s so easy to make too. I combine all the ingredients with cooked rice and I make a dressing from olive oil, vinegar, mustard powder and sugar. Mix them all together and you have a delicious rice side salad which can accompany grilled meat or fish. Amazing!

To make my version of Cold Rice Salad, you will need the following ingredients:

So, how do you make Cold Rice Salad?

Steps to make Cold Rice Salad


Cook the rice


Follow the directions on the packet to cook the white rice until it is tender. I always add extra salt to the cooking water. Drain and set aside to allow to cool.


Make the dressing


In a small jar or bottle combine the olive oil, white vinegar, mustard powder and sugar. Close the lid and shake vigorously to mix.


Assemble the salad


Place the rice with the shallots, capsicum, corn, pineapple and sultanas in a large bowl. Pour over the dressing and mix well.



Serve immediately, garnished with shallots or coriander if desired
