1/2
lb smoked turkey breast, cut into 1x1/4x1/4-inch strips (2 cups)
1
large red bell pepper, cut into 2x1/4-inch strips

1/3
cup vegetable oil
1
tablespoon sugar

  1. Cook rice as directed on package, omitting butter and salt. In very large (4-quart) bowl, toss rice and lemon juice. Spread rice in 15x10x1-inch pan. Place in freezer 15 minutes or in refrigerator 1 hour to chill.
  2. When rice is cold, return to large bowl. Stir in remaining salad ingredients.
  3. In small bowl, beat all dressing ingredients with wire whisk until blended. Pour dressing over rice mixture; toss lightly to coat.

Substitution
Ham can be substituted for the smoked turkey breast, and zucchini or yellow summer squash can be used instead of the jicama. Cider vinegar can be substituted for the rice vinegar.
Serve With
Offer warm, cheesy focaccia wedges or slices of a rustic Asiago cheese loaf with this salad.
Did You Know?
Rice vinegar is made from fermented rice and is milder than either cider or white vinegar. Look for it along with other vinegars or in the Asian foods aisle of your supermarket.
