  • 1 green pepper, deseeded and finely diced
  • 3 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 6 Turkish apricots, roughly chopped
  • 3 heaped tablespoons vegetable Atchar (Medium or Hot)
  • 2 small nectarines, sliced
  • 5ml honey
  • a handful of almond flakes or pistachios, toasted
  • baby radishes (optional)
  • micro herbs, to finish


  • zest of 1 lemon plus 60ml lemon juice
  • 45ml (3 tablespoons )olive oil
  • 5ml (1 teaspoon) honey
  • salt and black pepper, to taste

Curried mayo yoghurt

  • 60ml (1/4 cup) mayonnaise
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) Greek yoghurt
  • 15ml (1 tablespoon) mild curry powder
  • 30ml (2 tablespoons) lemon juice
  • a pinch of salt


  1. Place the cooked rice, red and green peppers, onions, apricots and atchar in a large mixing bowl and toss together.
  2. To make the dressing, place all the ingredients in a jam jar and shake to combine.
  3. For the curried mayo, whisk all the ingredients together and pour into a small serving bowl.
  4. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to combine.
  5. Sear the nectarine slices briefly in a griddle pan, about 2 minutes per side, then drizzle with a teaspoon of honey. Alternatively, you can leave this step out and serve them freshly sliced.
  6.  Transfer the salad to a large platter. Toss through a handful of herbs and arrange the peaches and radishes on top. Scatter over the nuts and serve the curried mayo alongside.
