Rice Salad

     Here is another recipe from my aunt Gladys. A cold  rice salad, perfect for summer get togethers. The quantity of rice is dry, to be cooked before hand. That makes sense right? Two cups of dry rice will give more than two cups cooked, I've never measured and the recipe included rice cooking instructions. Living with a rice fanatic, has to be washed three times etc etc, I would never presume to include cooking instructions. If you don't care for rice, and I can't say I do, you could substitute orzo, a rice shaped/sized pasta and it would work just as well.

Gladys’s Rice Salad
2 cups rice, cooked - as opposed to 2 cups of cooked rice
1 large onion, chopped
1 cup chopped celery
1 small green pepper, chopped
1 can mushrooms, drained
½ cup sugar
¾ cup olive/vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon dry mustard
½ teaspoon celery seed
½ cup vinegar
In a small bowl whisk together all dressing ingredients until well combined
Pour into a bowl containing all other ingredients and mix well
Served chilled
      The dressing recipe is very similar to sweet cole slaw so you could probably add carrot and cucumber to this if you wanted to change it up a little.

     Thank you Gladys for sharing, now all I need is a picture.

     Thanks for dropping by.
