To make a savory version of Hawaiian salad, cook 1 cup of long grain rice and 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric in 2 cups of vegetable stock. Drain the rice, and spread it on a tray to cool. To make the dressing, whisk together 4 tablespoons of lemon juice, 3 tablespoons of honey, 2 tablespoons of pineapple juice, one crushed clove of garlic, salt and pepper in a bowl. Mix the cooled rice with 3/4 cup of pineapple chunks, 1/2 cup of mango chunks, 1/4 cup of crushed walnuts, 1/3 cup of raisins, 1/2 cup of chopped cucumber and half a stalk of chopped celery. Fold the dressing into the salad mixture gently, and serve immediately.
