Brown Rice Salad

Yum … the only word needed to describe this delicious, healthy Brown Rice Salad! This is one dish I make a lot when I’m asked to bring something along to a family dinner or barbecue. I also make this often for dinner but usually halve the quantity. Because this is a salad that’s eaten cold, it’s perfect for school lunches and a great alternative to sandwiches and wraps as it’s so filling. Enjoy!
