Making a salad with rice and mushrooms:

Step 1: prepare the pic.

Pour rice into a medium pan and fill it with purified water so that the liquid completely covers the cereal. Wash rice with clean hands. After - drain the water and repeat the procedure first. And so on until the water is completely transparent. Then we refill the container with plain water. The proportions of rice and water should be 1 to 2 respectively.

We put the pan on medium heat. When the water boils, make a small fire, cover the container with a lid and cook the cereal for 15-20 minutesuntil the liquid has completely evaporated, and the rice itself becomes friable.

Turn off the burner, and pour the rice into a sieve or in a colander so that the remaining moisture comes out. We leave it in this state until it cools down to room temperature.

Step 2: prepare the champignons.

Wash the mushrooms under running water and put on a cutting board. Using a knife, we cut off the coarse legs and damage on the mushroom caps. Then grind them into small pieces and transfer to a free plate.

Pour ordinary water into a small pot and put on medium heat. When the liquid boils, salt it and, using a tablespoon, mix everything well. We make the fire less than average and carefully spread the mushroom pieces into the pan. Again, mix everything with improvised inventory and cook for 10-15 minutes under the cover. Then we turn off the burner, and we put the champignons with a slotted spoon on a free plate and set aside to cool to room temperature.

Using a medium grater, grate hard cheese on a cutting board. Then we shift the cheese chips into a free plate. Attention: You can use any hard cheese to make a salad. For example, it can be Kostroma, Russian, Adyghe and even Eden cheese with a sweetish flavor.

Step 4: prepare bell peppers.

We wash the bell pepper under running water and put it on a cutting board. Using a knife, remove the tail and seeds. Again, slightly wash the vegetable from the remnants of the seeds and cut into small squares. Shake the finely chopped vegetable in a clean plate.

Step 5: prepare the olives.

We put the olives on a cutting board and, using a knife, grind it into small pieces. If desired, olives can be cut into circles. The resulting pieces are transferred to a free plate.

Step 6: prepare the pineapples.

We lay out the pineapple rings on a cutting board and use a knife to cut into small pieces. After - shredded fruit is transferred to a clean plate.

Step 7: prepare the green peas.

Using a can opener, open a can of canned peas. Holding the lid, drain the liquid in which it was stored and set the vegetable aside.

Step 8: prepare a salad with rice and mushrooms.

In a medium bowl, lay out such ingredients as boiled rice, mushrooms, canned peas, pineapples, chopped bell pepper, olives and cheese chips. Water everything with a small amount of mayonnaise, sprinkle with salt to taste and, using a tablespoon, gently mix until a homogeneous mass is formed. Immediately after that we transfer the dish to the salad bowl and can serve it to the table.
