Place 2 1/4 cups broth in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Add rice, stirring well. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand, covered, 5 minutes.

Step 2

While rice cooks, combine remaining 1/4 cup broth, vinegar, and next 5 ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.

Step 3

Combine rice, peas, and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Add vinegar mixture, stirring gently to combine. Cover and chill at least 30 minutes.

Step 4

Spoon rice mixture onto a lettuce-lined serving plate.

Chef's Notes

Hoppin' John is a Southern favorite most often served warm as a main dish. This chilled version, flavored with a vinaigrette, makes a handy make-ahead main-dish salad. If you have leftover rice, use 3 cups in this recipe.
