Zucchini Rice Salad





I had extra rice left from another dish which means, I make a rice salad. I also had two zucchini at loose ends and I found a yummy looking zucchini salad in the book, "Dining In" and decided to combine my rice and this zucchini recipe and see what I get. It turned out to be a good combination but I think, it needed more heat or more flavor and that is easily remedied.

Zucchini Rice Salad

1 medium zucchini, thinly sliced

4 radishes, thin sliced

1 purple onion, thin sliced

1/2 cup yellow and orange yellow pepper

3 garlic pickles, chopped

1 cup cooked brown rice


Dressing: 


1/2 cup cider vinegar

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Method:


Combine the rice and the vegetables in bowl.


Whisk the dressing ingredients together and pour over the vegetables.

Cover and refrigerate for an hour before serving. (Mine was refrigerated for a few hours.)
