    Delicious cold rice salad with chicken, sweetcorn, chorizo and tomato. Ideal for the lunch box for work or serve at a BBQ. This recipe came about after having some leftover chicken mixture from my chicken enchilada recipe and has been slightly adapted now as a recipe in its own right.

    Cooked asparagus, diced cucumber and spring onion are folded into long-grain rice and chilled. Toss with mustard vinaigrette when ready to serve. A cool spring or summer salad chock-a-block with green veg.

    Sweet juicy papaya, crisp leaves and aromatic herbs are a sensational combination in this Thai-inspired salad. Thai fragrant rice – jasmine rice simmered in stock and scented with lime leaves – is the perfect complement. If you can't get fresh lime leaves easily, they are available in jars at some supermarkets.

    A wonderfully hearty and robust salad. It's made by tossing together beetroot, rice, kidney beans, pepper, onion and radishes in a horseradish-Dijon dressing.

    This is a very tasty brown rice recipe salad. Mmm!! Very different and tasty served with barbecue meats. I don't think this need to be changed at all, it is so perfect the way it is.

    With tender smoked chicken, mixed rice and refreshing melon and pineapple, this salad is as satisfying as it is delicious. It doesn't have an oil-based dressing to pile on the calories – just freshly squeezed orange juice and the juices from the other fruits. This salad is best eaten on the day it is made.
