READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by yooper

A wonderful East-Asian inspired salad! Very healthy with a wonderfully crunchy texture thanks to all the fresh vegtables. This is a perfect meal to throw together when it's too hot to cook!

This recipe is quite addictive! I prepared it exactly as written, except using about 1/3 cup of oil instead of 1/2 cup. Also, I used brown instead of white rice. It's a really colourful, good-looking salad, very filling and very delicious. I think what made it hard for me to stop eating it was how refreshing it was. Perhaps it was the parsley, but whatever, this will become a regular fixture. Thanks!
