Curried Rice Salad

It has been abnormally hot here lately, to the point where not even the air conditioner is doing the trick. Staying indoors, drinking plenty of water and eating cool foods has been getting me by.

That being said I did wan to make something with a bit more substance and as I had quite a bit of leftover rice on hand this curry rice salad was perfect.

I love rice and I love curry so this salad is the best of both worlds. While I made my version on the simpler side you could mix things up more by adding some chopped apples, celery or radishes. I served mine with some chilled salmon but grilled chicken or prawns also pair nicely.

Curried rice salad is a family mainstay, I recall it being brought to many family gatherings and being enjoyed by everyone. I even have a vague recollection of having this at Thanksgiving once, though I may just be getting my memories muddled. I am definitely going to have to continue making this for family and bringing it to gatherings.
