READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Dancer^

Leftover brown rice and cooked asparagus are perfect to make quick work of assembling this salad.

I didn't have any asparagus so I improvised with a cucumber. I added herbed goat cheese and a small bit of finely chopped shallot too. It tastes great. I'm looking forward to serving it tomorrow at a picnic with chicken salad sliders, deviled eggs and blueberry bars for dessert.
