Brown Rice Salad


1 cup cooked brown rice
6 spring onions
1 red capsicum
1/3 cup currents
60g roasted cashews
2 tablespoons roasted sunflower seeds
Small tin sweetcorn kernels
3 tablespoons chopped parsley
6 tablespoons dressing


6 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoons lemon juice
1 clove garlic – crushed
Add salt and pepper and shake to blend


Add spring onions and garlic while the rice is still warm, to help bring out their flavor. Add the rest of the ingredients once the rice has cooled. The corn is meant to be optional but for me it’s a must addition.

If you're looking for cold picnic food recipes, this salad is great for picnics. I've taken this to BBQ's and Dinner Parties.
