Loved this salad! I am a huge fan of yogurt with rice, thanks to a Turkish friend, and this was a wonderful take on the dish! Our kids ate second helpings and asked for it again the next day! It keeps well too! I followed basically as written, but added extra oil and fresh lemon juice. Next time I will add more apple! Loved the tart, sweet, crispness of the apple the best!
This is weird and wonderful. The combination of ingredients is ingenious (was Alton Brown behind this?)! The salty/spicy yogurt base is balanced by the sweet, crunchy apple chunks and savory onion. I made a few changes based on ingredients on hand: Jasmine rice, no zucchini, only a couple Tbsp of green onion instead of a cup of chopped onion, a Gala apple instead of Granny Smith, and a little extra red pepper since I like it spicy. Quite Addictive! Nice & cool salad for summer.
