Today I bring you a tasty and easy dish: a simple rice salad, although its original presentation makes it special.
Using cooked rice as main ingredient, you can add all the ingredients you like, alternating rice layers with different ingredients.
Ingredients (4-6 servings)
250 g of white rice
Olive oil, salt and vinegar to taste, for dressing the salad
Freshly ground black pepper
100 g York ham (boiled ham)
150 g sliced Havarti cheese
2 cans of tuna in oil (100 g drained)
1/2 chopped onion
70 g pitted green olives
1 small can of corn (140 g drained)
4 or 5 finely chopped lettuce leaves
Mixed salad to decorate
Line the mold with plastic wrap.
Cook the rice until is done. Drain and rinse with cold water and put in a large bowl. Let it cool completely.
Later add to the rice: salt, olive oil, vinegar and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Toss well.
Begin to assemble the cake in the lined pan, press tightly all the layers to make it compact and does not hinder the unmolding later.
Put first a layer of rice and cover with a thin layer of mayonnaise. Put another layer with the ingredients you want, in my case ham and cheese.
Place another layer of rice, return to cover with a little mayonnaise and another layer of filling: the tuna with olives and onion in this case.
Put again another layer of rice, mayonnaise and a layer with corn and lettuce.
Finally put a last layer of rice and cover with plastic wrap, gently push with your hands down and compact well the whole cake.
Refrigerate till serve, then unmold and decorate to taste.
