Rice and Fruit Salad


Rice and Fruit Salad

Prep Time: 15 minutes Yield: 4 servings

This is a great recipe for when it’s just too hot to cook. If you are taking this dish to a potluck dinner, wait until you arrive to add the fresh fruit. It will not have to be heated or refrigerated.



2 cups of cooked long grain rice

2 Tablespoons of olive oil

2 Tablespoons of orange juice

1 Tablespoon of vinegar

2 teaspoons of chopped shallots

¼ teaspoon of salt

¼ teaspoon of pepper

1 cup of chopped fresh peach

¾ cup of fresh blueberries

¾ cup of fresh strawberries

3 Tablespoons of toasted almonds


Heat a small, dry skillet, add almonds and stir until toasted.  Whisk together the oil, juice, vinegar, shallots, salt and pepper. Add the almonds, cooked rice, peach and berries and toss gently.
