Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    2cups (cooked) short grain brown rice
    1 avocado peeled, pitted & chopped
    1/2 an English Cucumber
    2 medium red, ripe, firm tomatoes
    3 stalks celery, finely chopped
    2Tbsp finely chopped red onion
    1 crushed garlic clove
    a squirt of lime juice
    14 sprays of Hellman's Balsamic Breeze salad spritzer

Tips

Use organic products wherever possible. Seed the cucumbers & tomatoes to prevent 'bottom of salad bowl soup'.


Directions

Chop all veggies but avocado & add to a bowl. Toss together. Chop avocado. Put in a cup/bowl & squirt with lime juice to coat lightly. Add to salad bowl. Add rice. Toss gently. Spray salad spritzer 7 times. Toss. Spray another 7 times. Toss. Set in fridge to let flavours meld. Serve.
