This easy and flavorful rice salad packed with fresh vegetables, mayo, and jasmine rice is a delicious addition to any meal. It's the perfect cold salad to make ahead of time and enjoy throughout the week and is sure to be a hit at any gathering.
Get a mandolin or box grater and grate the carrots into a large bowl. Add the diced bell pepper, red onion, tomatoes, finely chopped fresh parsley, cooked rice and mayo. Mix everything together with your hands or a large spoon and season with salt and pepper.
If you're not using leftover rice, make sure the cooked rice is completely soft, drained well, and cold before mixing it into the salad.
For the best taste and texture, chill the salad in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving. This will help the flavors meld, and the salad will have a better consistency.
