Indonesian Curry Rice Salad
from The Scramble

Prep + Cook = 25 minutes + chilling (optional)
4 servings, about 1 1/2 cups each

This rice salad is so popular with Scramble subscribers that founder Aviva Goldfarb often uses it at her cookbook demo events. Serve it with hummus or baba ghanoush (a Middle Eastern eggplant dip) with pita chips and baby carrots.

Ingredients:
7 oz. rice pilaf, any flavor, or use 1 1/4 cups uncooked rice or orzo
noodles
1 tsp. curry powder
1/2 cup unsalted cashews or slivered almonds, lightly toasted
1/2 cup dried cranberries
2 stalks celery, diced
5 – 8 oz. can diced water chestnuts, drained
1/4 cup orange juice
1 Tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 Tbsp. peanut oil

Prepare the rice pilaf (or rice or orzo) according to the package
directions. Add the curry powder to the water with the rice before cooking
it.

While the rice is cooking, put the nuts, cranberries, celery and water
chestnuts in a medium bowl.

In a measuring cup, mix together the orange juice, soy sauce and oil.

When the rice is done, add it to the bowl with the nuts and vegetables, and
toss it with the sauce. Mix it thoroughly and chill until ready to serve
it, at least 30 minutes, if possible, and up to 48 hours.

Scramble Flavor Booster: Increase the curry powder to 1 1/2 tsp.

Tip: To lightly toast nuts, use a broiling pan in the toaster oven and set
the toaster to the lightest setting. When the nuts are light brown, remove
them from the oven and add them to the salad. Nuts burn easily, so watch
them closely. Alternatively, bake them at 350 degrees for about 5 minutes,
stirring them once, until they are light brown and fragrant.
