Black Rice Salad

Published July 10, 2018 by lynn k scott

As part of my psuedo-raw, vegan, vegetarian diet I made up this dish.  I thought it would be great for lunch and it was!

I started by making just half a cup of black rice.  Yes, I know, they look like little ants in a salad, but it’s SOOOOO good.  That, and you can use it to freak out your kids.  Either way, it’s a win!  Sorry…couldn’t resist; ok, I didn’t really try either.

Then I cut up some veggies to add to my salad:  Cucumber, mini bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, a bit of fresh cilantro, fresh basil and fresh dill (I put that one everything), shredded carrots and a few beets.  I made up a light dressing to toss it in.  Mixed everything together and divided into two portions.  I had lunch for two days.

I will say, adding avocado to the salad, right before you eat it, will take it to a whole new level.  I am going to be making more for my lunches.  It is definitely better than the standard lettuce salad.

This salad was vegan, gluten-free and DELICIOUS!  I modeled it off a recipe I have been making for years (not my personal recipe).  You can make either or make it a combination.  Either way, it’s salad season…
