    This salad is the result of a great friendship and the love of food that I share with my dear Israeli friend, Einav. The beauty of this wonderful dish, ideal for Succot, is that you can add and remove ingredients as you like. You can use dried figs or prunes instead of dates, for example. Orange and lemon zest is also a tangy and tasty addition.
    Serves 4-6
    Preparation time: 30 minutes

    Ingredients
    250g long grain and wild rice
    120g walnuts or pecans, broken in pieces
    6-8 dried dates, finely chopped
    8-10 dried apricots, finely chopped
    40g sun-blushed/dried tomatoes, finely chopped
    100g good quality Mediterranean pitted black olives
    Approx 1 tbsp of finely chopped mint
    Approx 1 tbsp of finely chopped chives
    80ml extra virgin olive oil
    Salt and ground black pepper to taste

    Method

    Rinse the rice in cold water and cook in accordance with the packet instructions.

    Drain and cool for 5-8 minutes. Do not rinse.

    While the rice is cooking, mix the nuts, dried fruits, sun blushed/dried tomatoes, olives, herbs, salt, pepper and olive oil in a large shallow serving bowl and stir thoroughly.

    While the rice is still warm — but not hot — mix well with all the remaining ingredients. Season to taste.

    Serve lukewarm or at room temperature.
