Method

Cook the rice in plenty of boiling water (20 to 25 mins approx.), drain, rinse and allow to cool.

Crush the garlic into a small mixing bowl.

Chop small or crush the pineapple and add to the bowl.

Add the oil, juice, cayenne, soy, salt and vinegar and mix well.

Prepare the salad ingredients, trimming off skin, roots, pith, seeds etc., as necessary. Chop fairly small to chunky.

Mix the cooled rice and salad ingredients in a serving bowl, pour in the dressing, and turn gently to coat all ingredients. Chill in the fridge before serving.

Variations

Some recipes include peanut oil.

Peanuts would be more authentic than cashews but harder to find.
