Crab sticks and rice salad


Today is one more Lent Friday and I believe it's really good not to eat meat at least once a week. So today's snack is Crab sticks and rice salad. This salad is very popular in Lithuania, almost as popular as potato salad.  So as I am already in Lithuanian mood ( heading for Vilnius on Monday), this salad was very right for me!

What we need:

2 glasses of rice, cooked

2 medium cucumbers, peeled and cut in small cubes.

1 glass of sweet corn

1 small green and red pepper, cut into cubes

a bunch of fresh dill, chopped

200gr of crab sticks ( real crab would be even better), sliced

spring onions, chopped

salt and pepper

4 tbsp of mayonaise

What we have to do:

1. Wash and boil rice. Let it cool.

2. Chop all the vegetables -  cucumber, peppers, spring onion, dill. 

3. Slice crab sticks and add to the vegetables. Then add sweet corn and cooled rice. 

4. Season with salt and pepper. Add mayonaise, mix it and serve. I also like to add some lemon juice to freshen up... :)
