Drain and cool. Tip: cook rice the day before and cool overnight in the fridge. Thinly slice the shallots and capsicum. Combine vegetables, currents, cashews and cooled rice. In a separate bowl prepare the dressing. Crush garlic and combine with oil, squeezed lemon juice and soy sauce. Whisk to combine and add to salad. Mix all ingredients well. Serve immediately. Tip: If you are preparing in advance, keep currants, cashews and dressing separate until just prior to serving as the cashews will go soggy.
