Gluten-Free Curried Rice Salad

This Gluten-Free Curried Rice Salad recipe is a great make-ahead salad for BBQs, potlucks, and get-togethers. It’s different than your typical go-to pasta salad or potato salad in that it is made with rice (obviously) but also in the ingredients used, like curry powder, artichoke hearts, and giardiniera.

I used Pastene’s quartered and marinated artichoke hearts and their giardiniera. If you’ve never had or heard of giardiniera, it’s a flavorful blend of cauliflower, red pepper strips, carrots, celery, manzanilla olives, and golden pepperoncini. It’s perfect for salads, appetizers, and more.

I cooked my rice in chicken broth, but if you’re vegetarian you can use vegetable broth instead.
