When we were kids, our mom used make the most simple, yet delicious rice salad. I remember getting super excited every time I saw her preparing it, because it was one of my very favorites. The funny things is, it only had 3 ingredients: rice, corn and peas. Dressed with a super tangy lemon, olive oil and grain mustard dressing. As simple as her salad is, it requires two things to turn out right :
Good quality rice
The rice has to be cooked to perfection, so it’s light, fluffy and loose and not a sticky mess (we’ve learned that from experience!!)
Somehow our mom always managed to prepare the perfect salad. She’s always had a somewhat innate “magic touch” when it comes to rice. Something she didn’t really pass on to us… but after working on it enough we’ve gotten pretty close 😉 We love to experiment with different varieties of rice. Each one of them is a different world! They’re all unique as far as flavor and cooking method, and that definitely keeps our rice recipes interesting.
