  1. Cook the rice in a large saucepan of boiling salted water following packet instructions until tender. Drain. Refresh under cold running water. Drain well.

Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle over salad and toss to combine. Place salad on a serving platter and sprinkle with pine nuts to serve.
