Rice Salad with Lemon, Dill, and Red Onion WCC #14

Here’s my entry for the Weekend Cookbook Challenge #14. The theme is salad and I chose a Martha Stewart recipe from my Martha Stewart Living Annual Recipes 2003 cookbook. Luckily I can save myself some typing because the recipe is posted HERE. 🙂

Rice Salad

This salad is a great side dish and I especially like it served with marinated grilled tofu or vegetable kabobs. I usually reduce the lemon juice by about a tablespoon and use about 1/4 less zest to keep this salad from being overly lemon-y. I also was excited this salad uses fresh dill because I was able to pick it from my Chia Herb Garden. 😀 The recipe is really simple to make and I like how the red onions are quickly “marinated.” This salad is best served warm.

    That salad looks delicious! You know how I go on food “kicks”? I’m on a rice kick lately! I made another Martha Steward recipe where she marinated the red onions first, so it must be her thing.

    P.S. I had to laugh at your story about tomato sauce, pizza, and grandma. How funny! Ok, I have another story for you. When I was a kid and would get scared watching gruesome scenes in a movie, my dad would tell me that it wasn’t real blood, they used ketchup. Now I see he meant it’s all fake, but I took it literally and believed that they used ketchup for blood in movies for the longest time!

    This salad looks so light and refreshing. You’re right about serving it with grilled veggies. This will be great when we can finally get out and grill again.

    I didn’t get to comment on your lentil salad, but I think it sounds wonderful. I’m a big mustard and dill fan.

    is that a pyrex bowl and do you have the other solid color bowls?!

    I saw your comment, my friend’s sewing machine is a Husqvarna Viking. I was telling my gramma that my mom’s White needs servicing so she said, just take my sewing machine, I never use it! WHOOP!

    Bazu, ha ha, loved your ketchup story 🙂

    Kleo, I’m not a huge dill fan but I like it better when I grow it myself 🙂 Tastes better that way for some reason.

    Udandi, Cool, I’m always nosy/curious about what sewing machines people use 🙂 Woo Hoo about getting your grandma’s sewing machine. That rocks!!! And you have a good eye, that is a Pyrex Primary Color Mixing Bowl. I have a whole set of primary mixing bowls plus a few doubles. I also have some primary color refrigerator dishes with lids. The prices for primary pieces are getting out of hand and it’s getting harder and harder to find it cheaply second-hand. Good thing I collect other Pyrex patterns that are easier to find and cheaper too! LOL

    Thanks Missvee 🙂

    Yum! This strikes me as good picnic food. If only it weren’t rainy and yucky here in Chitown…

    That looks like a great, simple dish for the summer. I might give it a try soon though as I’ve been looking for some easy recipes to prepare.

    BTW -I made your peanut butter filled cookies a few weeks back. My friends loved them and pretty much demolished the whole batch.
