Cook the rice in abundant, slightly salted boiling water. Rinse it with cold water and let it drain. In the meantime, get ready all the other remaining ingredients and put together in a salad bowl. Once the rice has cooled, combine everything in the prepared bowl and chill the salad in the refrigerator. Serve chilled with the rest of the meal.
