  1. In a large stockpot, cook the rice according to package directions using chicken stock instead of water.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan heat Sicilian Lemon Olive Oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until tender and translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in a sugar shaker, cherries, Barrel Aged Vinegar, and Vanilla Bean Sea Salt. Allow to cook and reduce slightly, about 5 minutes. Taste and season with more salt as necessary.

  3. Toss the cooked rice with the celery and dressing. Arrange on a serving platter and garnish with pomegranate seeds and pecans. Enjoy!
