Ingredients

  • 3 cups (750 mL) cooked Basmati rice
  • 1 cup (250 mL) halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup (250 mL) diced, seeded cucumber
  • 1 cup (250 mL) diced yellow bell pepper
  • 1 cup (250 mL) halved green grapes
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) chopped red onion
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) curry powder
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) olive oil
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) white wine vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 5 oz (150 g) Canadian Sharp Cheddar diced

Preparation

Toss rice with fruit and vegetables.

In a bowl, combine curry powder, oil and vinegar. Season. Drizzle dressing on rice mix, and mix to coat well.

Add Canadian Cheddar, toss and serve.

Tips

For a milder version, try replacing curry powder with Herbes de Provence or add raisins, diced apples, nuts, etc.—whatever your imagination thinks up!

Canadian Gouda, Feta, Havarti and Mozzarella are all fine alternatives to the suggested Sharp Cheddar.
