  • 1
    Wash the rice and run through a colander to get rid of excess water.
  • 2
    Add olive oil to a small pot at medium heat.
  • 3
    Add the clean rice and salt, and increase the heat. Once the water boils, cover it and leave at low heat for 15 minutes. Remove from the fire and let cool. If possible, move into another container for approximately 15 minutes to allow for quicker cooling.
  • 4
    While the rice is cooking, begin chopping and dicing your peppers to put aside for the moment. Measure the corn kernels and raisins you’ll need.
  • 5
    Once the rice is cool, add the mayonnaise and remaining ingredients. Mix until uniform and add salt to taste. Serve or cover and put away in your fridge until ready to serve.

Expert Tips

  • Don’t mix the ingredients while the rice is warm. Allow to cool completely first.
  • If you’re not going to serve immediately, place in the fridge in a vacuum-sealed container for no more than one day. Mayonnaise will spoil quickly.
