i know you guys are tired of me talking about food and salad all the time...but its too warm for other things...salad..and beer..thats all..maybe some cold wodka too...
anyway..i love salad and this actually is more like a cold dish then a usuall green leaved salad thing,,,
so..all you need is:
175 gramms of mixed rice ( wild rice and any other kind you like)
salt, sea salt is just fine
350 gramms of clean, cooked prawns
one mango, in cubes or what shape you like
4 green onions..those..you know..spring onions actually..cut in rings
25 gramms of chopped almonds
fresh peppermint and lemon balm which i grow both in the garden but you can actually buy that stuff pretty much everywhere
freshly grounded pepper
i always add some red peppers to..just for the sharpness which goes along well with the sweet/sour dressing
for the dressing
2 eating spoons olive oil
4 tea spoons lime juice
2 garlic clove, crushed
2 tea spoons of honey, liquid
salt & pepper
cook the rice like..c´mon..dont make me discribe how to cook rice...you can do that..you write porn..you are able to cook rice...:-)..ok..as soon as the rice is done..decant the water from the pot..thats where a colander kicks in to be handy..put the rice in a bowl..and let it chill down for a while..when the rice starts to cool down mix it with the prawns...
now you mix all the salad dressing stuff in a cup..whisk it properly...season it and pour the whole delicious sweet-sour sauce over the rice-prawn mix and just fold it in..er*..the sauce i mean..now you add the mango cubes, the green onion, the almonds as well as the mint and the lemon balm...blend it all together..season it again with fresh pepper and maybe a bit more salt and..done...its esay and tasty and totally the right stuff for a summer evening...
