2 cups miniature marshmallows
2 tablespoons lemon or lime juice
1 1/2 cups sliced fresh strawberries*

- For Pudding: Combine rice, sugar, salt and 2 1/2 cups milk in large saucepan. Cook over medium low heat, stirring occasionally, until thick and creamy (about 20 to 25 minutes). Blend remaining 1/2 cup milk and eggs; stir into rice mixture. Cook 2 minutes longer, stirring constantly. Stir in butter and vanilla. Pour into serving dishes. Serve warm or cold with Strawberry Topping.
