Place the rice and some salt in a saucepan, pour 13/4 teacups boiling water over and bring back to the boil; then stir once, put a lid on and simmer very gently for 40 minutes or so until all the liquid has been absorbed.
Now empty the rice into a salad bowl, fluff it up with a fork and pour the dressing over while it's still hot. Allow it to cool and then mix in all the other ingredients, adding a little more dressing if it needs it and tasting to check the seasoning. Keep in a cool place until needed.

It has to be said that this is always going to be a matter of personal taste according to how much acidity you like and what your preferences are as to flavourings and so on. I seem to suffer from some kind of mental handicap with dressings...
