Preparation -- 20 minutes

FILL a medium-sized pan with water and salt or a vegetable stock cube and bring to a boil. COOK the rice according to the package. CHOP the poached pears into small pieces and keep the liquid aside.

REMOVE the cucumber seeds and chop into small cubes. REMOVE the hard parts and the green parts from the fennel bulb and slice into thin pieces. You can use a mandoline, kitchen cutting machine or vegetable peeler.

ROAST the almond shavings in a dry small skillet, keep an eye on them cause they tend to burn easily. As soon as the rice is done, drain it and let it cool off.

To speed up the process, you can rinse it with cold water.
