A lemony rice pilaf made with fresh lemon juice, dill, and mint. All the lemony goodness of Dolmas without the work!
Add 2 tbsp of light olive oil to the bottom of a medium-sized pot, add 2 cups diced onions and 1 tsp of salt. Saute them over low heat for about 5 minutes until they become translucent (to bring out its sweetness).
While the water is coming to a boil, wash the rice in a wire mesh strainer until the water runs clear, then add it to the pot once the water boils.
Add 1/3 cup lemon juice, 3 tbsp light olive oil, 1/2 tsp salt, 2 tbsp minced mint, and 2 tbsp minced dill to a small bowl and stir well.
Fluff your rice with a fork then drizzle the dressing over the rice before serving.
