Rice salad

I haven´t posted anything recently because I´ve been battling a stomach bacteria, and I have been banned from eating so many of my favourite foods, so I have decided to publish one of my “reserve” posts. I mean as a blogger you should always have one waiting for you in the drafts section, just in case, right?

INTRODUCING RICE SALAD

I haven´t done my rice salad for awhile now, but this is one of my favourite salads, alongside potato salad. Macaroni salad not so much!

Serves 3-5 people.

1,5 cup boiled rice, packed

1 package fake crab meat *which I love very much Or you can just use the real thing

1 cucumber, medium or large

3 egg whites *boiled

1 can corn

1/2 mayonnaise

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 tsp salt

3-4 tblsp evaporated milk *optional, this makes the salad more creamier.

Boil eggs. Separate the egg yolks. I´m not a big fan of egg yolks so I don´t often use them. But feel free to add the yolks. Cut into cubes.

Cut the cucumber and crab meat into cubes as well.

On top of the ingredients add the sour cream and mayonnaise, sprinkle the salt. Mix them on top of the salad before mixing it into the salad. Or use a separate bowl to mix the “sauce”. I´m too lazy, I just mix it right then and there. When it´s all mixed, you can add the evaporated milk.

I wish I could eat this right now but I can´t, I´m banned from eating rice 🙂
