250g red Camargue rice
zest and juice 2 lemons
4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
pinch of caster sugar
1 small ready-roasted chicken, skin discarded and meat shredded
50g almonds, toasted and chopped
1 medium cucumber, deseeded, cut into diagonal chunky pieces
1 bunch spring onions, chopped green only
100g feta cheese, crumbled
1 pomegranate, seeds removed
small handful dill, finely chopped
Boil the rice in plenty of salted water until just cooked, about 30 mins.
Meanwhile, make the dressing and prepare the other ingredients.
Place the lemon zest and juice, and olive oil in a jam jar with a fitted lid.
Add seasoning and the sugar and shake well. Drain cooled rice and tip into a large bowl.
Pour the dressing over the warm rice and mix well.
Let it soak in a little, then toss through the rest of the ingredients.
