Orange Rice Salad

Serving Size : 8

1 10 oz. can mandarin oranges in juice
1 1/8 pints orange juice
1 1/3 cups white long-grain rice -- rinsed
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 jar pimientos -- drained
1 small onion -- finely chopped
4 1/2 ounces snow peas -- sliced diagonally
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
pinch sugar
pinch dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Drain juice from oranges into a measuring cup. Reserve oranges. Add enough orange juice to mandarin orange juice to measure 2 1/4 cups. In a large saucepan, combine orange juice, rice, butter and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Bring to a boil and stir once. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 15 minutes or until rice is tender and orange juice is absorbed. Spoon rice into a medium size bowl and fluff with a fork. Cool.

Whisk olive oil, cider vinegar, sugar, dry mustard, pepper and remaining salt. Combine rice, pimentos, onion,and snow peas with the cooled rice. Carefully toss salad with dressing. Garnish with reserved oranges.
