Directions

  1. Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add rice. When water boils again, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 45 minutes, until rice is tender and most of the water has been absorbed. Remove from heat and let stand covered, 5 minutes. Then spoon rice into a large bowl. Add raisins, apricots, bell pepper, onion, and pine nuts. Toss to combine.
  2. In a small bowl or custard cup, combine remaining ingredients. Add to rice and mix well. Serve right away (Leftovers can be served cold).
