A delicious, nutty rice salad that is a meal on its own or fantastic to take to a BBQ as an impressive side dish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook brown rice until tender, allow to cool.
  2. To prepare the dressing put the ingredients into a large jar with a tight fitting lid and shake well. Put aside.
  3. In a large bowl add the rice and all other salad ingredients.
  4. Pour over the dressing and mix through. The flavours improve on standing as the rice soaks in the dressing. Enjoy!

Refreshing and so easy to make!! I added more garlic, didn't have green onion so I used dried chives. I did use less olive oil and just added soy sauce to taste. I let this sit in the fridge for a few hours and it was perfect. Also added sunflower seeds that were ranch flavored.

A tasty addition to a salad table. Personally I preferred to use less olive oil cutting it down to 1/3cup I also added a handful of chopped parsley, and a 2Tbsp of both sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. YUM!

This was really delicious! My fridge froze my green onions, so I used a couple of shallots, but otherwise made as per the recipe. A note for those who make this in the future - if you're using dark soy sauce, just use half the amount, and taste it from there! I really enjoyed the cashews and raisins in this - delicious! Made for PAC Fall 2009. You were adopted!
