1

Cook the rice with salt according to package directions. Fluff it with a fork. Turn it out onto a baking sheet in a thin layer and let it stand 15 minutes to dry slightly.

2

While the rice cooks, combine the mayonnaise, curry powder, ginger and juice of 1 lime in a small bowl and mix well. Let the mixture stand 10 minutes.

3

Transfer the rice to a large mixing bowl. Add the celery, scallions, apricots, cranberries, crystallized ginger and cashews and toss to mix. Add the mayonnaise mixture and blend with a rubber spatula until well-coated and thoroughly mixed. Add more lime juice if needed. Season with salt to taste. Serve at once or cover tightly and chill until needed up to several hours.
