Brown Rice Nut Salad

Submitted by: LAWISE

Introduction

I work in a restaurant, and this is my favorite salad! Wanted to put it in here for others to try and love as much as I do. There is a decent amount of prep work involved, but it seriously creates so much salad! I like to toast up some multigrain flatbread, layer some hummus, some of the rice nut salad, and sprinkle some feta cheese on top if I have it. Super delicious, super filing, and so good for you! Makes six large servings, if using with hummus and/or flatbread. By itself, maybe 4 large servings, about 332 calories each (mostly from the walnuts too).

Ingredients

    2 cups cooked brown rice
    1 large carrot, chopped
    1 cup broccoli florets, chopped
    half cup of chopped red pepper
    a couple almonds, thinly sliced. I put 6 in for nutrition info
    20 raisins
    1/2 small red onion, chopped. only use if you really like raw onion!
    1 celery stalk, chopped
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts
    tahini dressing to taste. I have 2.5 tbsp in for nutrition info.

Directions

Basically, all you have to do is toss all of the chopped veggies, fruits and nuts together lightly with tahini. The tahini basically holds everything together and adds fantastic flavor.
I then arrange a serving in the middle of a plate. Put hummus, feta cheese and sliced warm multigrain flatbread or pita around the salad on the side. (None of those ingredients are listed in nutrition info because they are totally optional.)

Enjoy!
