- Rice, cooked and refrigerated, for ease of mixing (the Trader Joe's kind is called Basmati Rice Medley, but I'll betcha any kind would do).
- Chicken, cooked, cooled, and cubed
- Dried cranberries
- Olive Oil
- Red wine vinegar (slightly more than however much olive oil)
- Ground ginger (be generous with it)
So, that is how it goes. It is good with fresh apples, too, instead of the cranberries; I just happened to have cranberries on hand. Actually, the last time I made it, I cut up a Braeburn apple somebody had given me and that was very, very good, except that after I put most of the apple into the salad, it occured to me to taste it on its own, and then I felt awful. No, the apple didn't make me feel awful, but it was as though I had just obliterated a rare and wonderful wine in a marinade where any wine would have served. A Braeburn, come to find out, is more than good enough to be enjoyed without even the company of cheese.
