Hi! It’s again time for world on a plate! And this month we are doing grain salads.
I am late with the posting because of the Italy-England game and I have 3000 things to do before going to theater in 1 hour… So I’ll be brief and get straight business.
As grain salad, I am proposing an Italian classic: Insalata di riso (rice salad). The dish is typically eaten in summer and is a salad made with boiled rice and whatever you have in the fridge. Typical ingredients include: pickles, pickled onions, cubed ham, cubed cheese, boiled eggs, olives, tuna, pickled pepper, tomatoes, giardiniera, boiled peas…. Basically whatever you have in the fridge and like.
It is a dish that keeps well and can be enjoyed for days. It also works great for open air picnics or lunches. And obviously is a great way of using up leftovers.
Remember to check out what kind of salads people make around the globe!
