A nice light ‘rice’ salad that is wonderfully easy to prepare. The flavours in the dish make it a wonderful accompaniment to any meat, fish or tofu. It is also tasty by itself.

This is one salad where adding the dressing on early actually makes it taste better as they flavours really come alive when it has sat for a little bit.

This can also be heated.
