Default Re: Brown Rice

Peep, this is a recipe from my very first cookbook, "Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook".

The use of French dressing sounds odd, but all together, this is delicious!


Rice and Ham Salad

1 1/3 cups long grain rice
1/4 French salad dressing
3/4 cup mayo
1 T green onion, chopped
1/2 teas salt
1/2 to 1 teas curry powder
1/2 dried mustard
black pepper

8 ounces cooked ham, diced or cut in strips
1 cup sliced raw cauliflower
1/2 10oz box frozen peas, cooked and chilled (or just fully thawed)
1/2 chopped celery
1/2 cup thinly sliced radishes
1 casaba melon, chilled (Lee's note: I have never usedthis)

Cook rice, toss with French dressing and chill for several hours. Combine mayo, green onion, and seasonings. Add to the chilled rice and toss. Add ham and vegs; toss.

Cut melon into rings, remove rind and seeds, and mound the salad on top of the rings.

Serves 6
