Mix together the warm rice, walnuts, currants, shallot, scallion, olives and shredded chicken.
In another bowl whisk together the vinegar, salt, lemon zest, honey and olive oil. Toss vinaigrette with the rice mixture and stir in the parsley.
Serve warm or room temperature. Spoon salad into lettuce leaves, wrap and eat!
You can make this ahead, and refrigerate it, but be aware the rice gets that hard, cold thing going on once chilled, so give it a little spin in the microwave to soften the rice.Get creative too. Swap the olives for red bell pepper or the currants for fresh grapes. Make this salad your own and enjoy.
