Recipe: Rice salad with paprika and chives

Rice recipes with aromatic herbs
September 26, 2012

September is the time of year when there are still summer harvests, and I have already started planning what to grow next spring. This light and tasty rice salad is representative of this period, because it uses fresh harvested chives and cucumbers, and a variety of paprika purchased at the market, which I will grow next year.

PaprikaThis is Gelb Spitza paprika white, sweet and crisp, that I planned to grow next year.

Ky cucumberThis is a Ky Cucumber: this variety has a slightly bitter aftertaste, and I admit I will choose different varieties for the next year.
