Curry Rice Salad

Curry Rice Salad

So I wanted to make some sort of rice salad to be eaten with lettuce wraps.  I wasn’t sure where I was going with this recipe until the night I made it as the ingredients in the fridge determined what was going into the dish.  I made this last night before bed to marinate in the fridge all day and be eaten for dinner tonight.  I made enough for 4 plus extras for leftovers.  Since I haven’t been posting as much as I’d like I’m going to post the rice salad today and add the final result pictures tomorrow.  Of course I forgot to take pictures of the ingredients uncooked, but this came at no surprise since I cooked this at 11:30 pm.

A little update to the words written above.  This caribbean inspired rice salad was sooo good I decided to eat it plain rather than enjoying it with lettuce wraps.  And good thing as my lettuce was a bit on the bitter side!!!
