This has got to be one of my favourite salads of all time. It's Mexican-inspired, hearty, packed full of protein, monosaturated fats, texture and flavour. My original recipe calls for black beans, but I've also used chickpeas in the past.
This rice dish is based on the traditional Greek salad, only it has rice and avocados added to it. It's delicious with grilled meats. Serve at your next summer barbecue.
This is a super-colourful salad, that's packed full of delicious flavours and textures. Brown rice is tossed with vegetables, raisins and cashews in a soy sauce dressing.
This is a delicious recipe that works equally well eaten on its own or as a suitable accompaniment to roast chicken or lamb kebabs. The versatility is that you can use any vegetables or salad items to mix in with the bulgur cracked wheat but traditionally spring onions, red and green peppers are used. You can also dress with a little olive oil and lemon juice for an extra tangy kick.
Quinoa is a great change to rice or pasta. I've been trying to think of more dishes using quinoa and came up with this salad.
I don't know where I got this recipe but have had it for as long as I can remember. The rice should be cooked in advance and can be kept in the fridge for 24 hours once cooled. I shall be using this salad when we throw a lunch party to celebrate my husband's birthday next month.
