Pasta Rice Salad

My cousin visited with us at the end of April and the weather was so lovely during his stay that a lot of the evening meals were braais (barbecues), and  fearing we would tire of Braai Sarmies and pap ‘n sous (maize meal and tomato/onion sauce) I  threw a Pasta Rice Salad into the mix.  This type of salad reminds me  of Christmas lunches as a child – such wonderful happy memories.  Green pepper (capsicum) and or raisins would also be nice added to this salad.

Pasta Rice Salad


375ml pasta rice
1 small onion diced
4 tinned peach halves diced
10ml curry powder
125ml mayonnaise
45ml chutney
15ml vinegar
Optional extras – diced green pepper (capsicum), raisins


  1. Cook the pasta rice according the the package instructions and allow to cool.
  2. Combine all the other ingredients together in a bowl.
  3. Add the pasta to the sauce mixture and stir through.
