Lemony Rice Asparagus

From lemon to dill to asparagus, this rice salad is bursting with the flavors of spring.


  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups white rice
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  1. Combine the water and rice in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook for 20 minutes, until the liquid is absorbed. Transfer the rice to a large bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, trim the tough ends from the asparagus and cut into bite-sized pieces. Steam for about 5 minutes, or until tender.
  3. Add the asparagus and dill to the rice.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil and lemon juice. Pour over the rice mixture and stir to combine.
