Rice and Fruit Salad

If you’re making rice for dinner, why not a bit extra to make this salad the next day? This is a great recipe for when it’s just too hot to cook. And it uses fresh fruits that are in season this time of year.

If you are taking this dish to a potluck dinner, wait until you arrive to add the fresh fruit. It will not have to be heated or refrigerated.

Rice and Fruit Salad


  • 2 cups of cooked long-grain rice, cooled
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 Tablespoon vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons chopped shallots
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup chopped fresh peach
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries
  • 3 Tablespoons chopped almonds


  1. Heat a small, dry skillet. Add almonds and stir until toasted.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, juice, vinegar, shallots, salt, and pepper.
  3. In a large salad serving bowl, toss together gently the almonds, cooked rice, peach and berries.
  4. Add dressing to salad and toss gently again.
