Mum’s Divine Rice Salad

Posted by on Nov 22, 2015 in Recipes - Salad | 2 comments

This is my famous rice salad which I have pilfered from my mum. Pretty much every social outing I go to where I have to bring a dish, THIS salad makes an appearance. And, inevitably, I will be asked by several people for the recipe – so, here it is. 
 
4 cups cooked brown rice
5 spring onions finely chopped
2 red capsicums chopped
1 cup raisins
120 g cashew nuts roasted and chopped
4 tablespoons chopped parsley
 
Put all of the above ingredients in a big bowl and then mix this dressing together in a jar. Tip over salad and mix in well.
 
soy dressing
1 cup olive oil
6 tablespoons soy sauce
4 tablespoons lemon juice
3 garlic cloves crushed
3cm piece ginger crushed / grated
Salt and Pepper
 
I know I am tooting my own horn but it really is delicious. Despite it’s deceptive “salad” label, it is not even remotely slimming due to lavish olive oil content. But scrumptious all the same.
 
Thanks mum ! xxx

    I have had the pleasure to have my taste buds go into overdrive excitement eating this gorgeous salad. And yes I was one of the people to have begged for the recipe. Thank you Ing and Mum!
