Black Rice Salad
October 29, 2013
Is Rice Salad an “old school” recipe? I am not sure. I am generally not a fan as I find it to be dry and just too much in your mouth. It is hard work to eat and not choke on it while you are chatting to friends or family.
This Rice Salad is not one of those. Black rice and quinoa give it a nutty flavor, the walnuts some lovely crunch. The baked beetroot, apple and orange blossom water add a sweet and interesting twist that have you returning to the dish to add more and more to your plate. Fresh herbs and baby spinach from the garden present freshness and a gorgeous piece of Spring.
My kids loved the bursts of sweetness from the baked apple in this recipe and Mr Fresh adores sage so he was easily sold.
This recipe was inspired by these things I collected from my garden – beetroot, herbs and baby spinach leaves. Added to pantry staples it made a lovely salad I will be repeating as the weather warms and the BBQs and Christmas events commence.
