Lufuno Sinthumule is a culinary lecturer, here he shares his favourite way to use leftover rice during the festive season.


  • 4 cups cooked rice
  • 1 x 410 g corn kernels can, drained
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 small cucumber, cored and sliced
  • 1 celery stick, sliced
  • sea salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • For the dressing:
  • 3 T olive oil
  • 2 T balsamic vinegar
  • 1⁄4 cup lemon juice

Cooking Instructions

1. In a large salad bowl, combine all the ingredients for the salad and mix well.

2. In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil, vinegar and lemon juice and toss with the salad. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook’s notes: Use any leftover veg from the fridge. For a creamier salad, add a spoon of mustard mayonnaise to the dressing. If you have guests coming over, let everyone dress their own salad so that the vegetables are fresher and crisper.
