Red Rice Salad

I found a recipe for red rice salad this past spring and never got around to making it. I’m actually glad I waited until summer to make this so I could use fresh summer peaches. Sure you could use frozen, but it just won’t taste the same.

Red Rice Salad

1 Persian cucumber, washed, sliced in half circles
1 cup red rice, cooked to package directions
1/3 cup lemon juice
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp fresh ginger, minced or grated
3 cups diced fresh peaches
¼ cup toasted sunflower seeds
¼ cup chopped fresh mint
Kosher salt to taste

  • Cook rice to package directions, if there is any water left in the pan drain it out
  • Place cooked rice on a baking sheet, spread it out, cool to room temperature
  • Whisk lemon juice, olive oil, ginger and a bit of kosher salt in a large bowl
  • Add cucumber, peaches, sunflower seeds and mint – mix gently to combine

Recipe noteS
  • These peaches are amazing when paired with marinated, sautéed tofu recipe I’m posting on Friday. Be sure to check back to get that one.
  • If making marinated tofu the same day, mix remaining marinade into salad, stir then pour out extra liquid before serving.
