Drain rice. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice) immediately and stir rice. Cool rice completely in the refrigerator.
While rice is cooking, chop fruit, nuts and vegetables as needed.
In a small jar (like a baby food jar) add oil, remaining 1/4 cup vinegar and chives. Shake to combine.
Combine cooled rice, salad ingredients and dressing and stir thoroughly. Put salad in the fridge for at least 30 minutes for flavors to blend.
