Tasty fruity savoury rice salad. Ideal accompaniment for barbecued, grilled or baked meats & fish. My mum used to make this salad back home in Cape Town, South Africa when we had our braais (bbqs) & it was my favourite salad, crunchy & fruity but definitely savoury. yummy mummy!

  11. •Using a tablespoon of either lemon or lime juice gives this dish a nice twist, or even try using lemon or lime rind for an extra zing.
