Moulded Rice Salad with Vegetables


5 cups of cooked rice HOT
1 1/2 cups vegetables chopped or shredded
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup vegetable or olive oil
2 tbsp white wine vinegar
1/2 to 1 tsp salt
1/4 pepper to taste


Prepare, by either chopping or shredding, 1 1/2 cups of vegetables that you like to eat raw. These vegetables can include green onions, peppers, celery, peas, carrots, zucchini, radishes. I would avoid wet vegetables like cucumbers and tomatoes.

Cook your choice of rice.

Put the hot cooked rice into a large bowl with the vegetables and stir together gently and then stir in the mayonnaise, mixing well.

In a separate dish, whisk together the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper and then add this wet mixture to the rice and vegetables.

Put and press the mixture into a 6-cup mold or other container (I simply use a loaf pan) and chill until needed.
