Curried Rice Salad

Time for another Secret Recipe Club reveal. This month I was assigned the blog Fit Mama Real Food .   Heather's blog is filled with so many healthy recipes that it took me a long time to decide what I was going to make.  I found her recipe for Curried Grain Salad and thought it looked really good, and as I have been wanting to make a rice salad for a while I decided to just go with just the rice and not any other grain.  I hope Heather doesn't mind that I took inspiration from her recipe but I changed it slightly to make it a rice salad that tastes a little like my coronation chicken salad.


2 cups cooked jasmine rice
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
2 spring onions, chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup hot mango chutney
1/4 cup apricot preserves
2 tbsp curry powder (I like the penzeys sweet curry powder)
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 cup dried cherries
salt and pepper

In a medium bowl add the mayonnaise, turmeric, curry powder, mango chutney, apricot preserves and mix together.  Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

In a large bowl add the cooked and cooled rice, diced bell pepper, celery, spring onions and cherries.  Add in the mayonnaise mixture and mix well.  Keep refrigerated.
