When I worked full time I used to visit a farmer's market close to where I worked. I'd always go and lunchtime and pick up a rice salad from Natural Vitality, who sell organic dips and salads.
I've not had one for years but randomly started thinking about this delicious little pot of healthy goodness recently and today had a go at replicating it.
It wasn't as good, I'll happily admit that but all the same it was delicious and perfect to pack in a little tub and take to work, as I have done today. Sorry for the rubbishy iPhone pic by the way, I'm camera-less at work.
Serves 2, you will need:
150g Brown/wholegrain rice
Handful dried apricots, chopped
Handful dates, chopped
Handful mixed seeds
Large handful parsley, finely chopped
Juice of 2 limes
1. Cook the rice according to the pack instructions
2. When the rice is cooked, drain and add the remaining ingredients
3. Give it a good old stir, allow to cool and enjoy!
