Easy Multi-coloured Rice Salad

This is an easy peasy, throw it all together side dish that can easily masquerade as a ‘salad’ when you’re in a rush and you’ve got places to be. It will be a welcome addition to any BBQ or summer gathering.


  • 1 x 250g packet Tilda Sundried Tomato Rice
  • 1 x 250g packet Tilda Pilau Rice
  • 1 x 250g Waitrose LOVE life puy lentils
  • 250g frozen peas


  1. Open both packets of rice and tip them into a large bowl. Combine thoroughly.
  2. Now open the packet of lentils and empty the contents into a sieve. Run them under the tap and use your fingers to make sure that the lentils are all separated. Tip the drained lentils in with the rice.
  3. Put the frozen peas into a small bowl and pour boiling water over them until they are covered. Leave for 3 minutes. Drain the peas through the sieve and tip in with the rice and lentils.
  4. Gently combine everything together and transfer to a serving dish.
  5. To serve the rice salad hot, cover loosely and warm gently in the microwave until piping hot.
