Hot German Rice Salad

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.


4-6 servings

This area has a long rice-growing history. In fact, our town has two of the largest farmer-owned rice mills in the country, so I like to use rice in lots of recipes.


  • 8 bacon strips
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped pimientos
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 3-1/2 cups hot cooked rice
  • 1 hard-boiled large egg, sliced


  1. In a skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp. Drain, reserving 1/3 cup drippings. Crumble bacon and set aside. Add the sugar, vinegar, celery seed and pepper to drippings. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute. Stir in pimientos, green pepper, onion, rice and bacon. Garnish with egg. Serve warm.
