Recipe by SHACKL
"Rice tossed with dried fruit, nuts, orange zest and green onions. It's very colorful and very tasty. You can use lemon or orange zest, raisins or dried cranberries, and any kind of nut you prefer. It's a recipe that's easy to mold to your tastes. The way I wrote it here is my favorite combination and always a hit with guests."

uncooked jasmine rice
grated orange zest
sliced green onions
I made just a couple of tweaks and this was really good. I added some minced onion and a little salt to the water when I cooked the rice. I toasted the slivered almonds in a dry skillet until they were browned before I added them to the cooked rice with the remaining ingredients. It made a nice change from plain rice.
I loved the recipe for both the final result and for the easy prep. In my book it's a keeper and it goes well with "Curry Grilled Chicken" (another quick and easy recipe).
This was very good (with the changes/additions I made). I have made it with both jasmine rice and basmati rice. I used chicken broth to cook the rice in, add fresh garlic a little ginger and some cilantro to the dish. Very good!
Totally fantastic! I use toasted almond slivers. The family loves this. It goes great with orange chicken. This is real keeper.
Well I modified the recipe also, adding extra slivered almonds, and for the fruit I used a combination of golden raisins, dried cranberries and dried goji berries to equal one cup total.
It was a little bland to my taste, so I added some McKay's Chicken seasoning, and then the flavor popped! Am thinking of also adding some finely chopped celery to add more flavor and texture. This will be a favorite for sure!
