We've had some really nice weather this week, a bit cool, but the sun has been shining and that's always a plus in my book! The other day I made us a delicious rice salad to go with some grilled chicken for our supper. We had spent a bit of time working in the garden, so quick and easy was the order of the day!
This salad is so simple to make and is so colourful! It goes with just about anything, but especially with chicken and fish!
You could actually use pouches of the ready cooked rice if you wanted to. I like the Tilda brand, basamati. This makes it even quicker on the table as you don't have to wait for the rice to cook!
It had a deliciously punch lemon and Dijon mustard vinaigrette dressing, with some fresh herbs added . . . parsley and dill . . .
Low in fat, high in fibre with lots of veggies and crunch, this is a really delicious salad. And it's really colourful as well! This is one of my quickie favourite salads! You could actually add chopped cooked chicken or salmon or tuna to the salad and it would be a main meal salad. Its pretty adaptable like that!
*Confetti Rice Salad*Serves 6
375ml water (1 1/2 cups)1/4 tsp salt
(I like to blanche the broccoli prior to using. This helps to tenderize it
and gives it a lovely green colour. To do this plunge into boiling water
for two minutes, then drain and rinse immediately in cold water. Drain well
before using.)4 radishes, thinly sliced
Happy Friday! Bon Appetit!
