3/4c uncooked rice.
1c frozen peas, thawed
1 tomato, chopped
green onions to taste, chopped
dried apricots to taste, chopped

For the dressing, you''ll need:

1/4c olive oil
2 tbsp sugar
1tsp dill weed
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp dried parsley
1tbsp prepared mustard
pepper and lemon juice to taste (optional, just to spice it up)

Cook rice and let it cool down. In a bowl, combine rice, peas and the rest of salad ingredients. In a small bowl, prepare the dressing, pour over salad and toss to coat. Keep in the fridge until serving. The taste will be on the sweet side.
