I don’t think that Nana was much of a tennis player, nor did she frequent tennis clubs that I know of. But this recipe is for tennis club rice salad, so there we are.
I can’t really imagine paying for a membership to a tennis club that makes it’s salads out of box rice though. The recipe calls for MJB brand rice specifically, but the man brought home Rice-a-Roni.
First, just cut up your onion, bell pepper, artichoke hearts and olives.
Cook the rice according to package directions without butter and let it cool thoroughly. Then add the other ingredients
The recipe calls for 1/3 cup mayonnaise and 2 jars of the marinating liquid that the artichokes were in, along with 3/4 tsp curry powder. I say only use a little of the marinating liquid and only enough mayo to bind the ingredients. Add freshly ground black pepper to taste. I didn’t use any salt because the Rice-a-Roni is really salty.
Cover and chill.
This wasn’t my favorite Nana recipe by a long shot, though I remember it fondly.
