This quick & colourful salad is proof that salads don't need to be boring or even green. It's fruity, nutty and filling without being too heavy. Enjoy!
First cook the rice according to package instructions. (This normally takes 15-20 minutes.) Then let it cool slightly.
While your rice is cooking, you can roast the walnuts in a dry pan over medium heat, until they start getting brown and fragrant (approx. after 5 minutes). Set aside.
To make the dressing, simply combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Taste and season again if needed.
Now combine the cooled rice, nuts, beans, corn, apple & basil in a big bowl, pour over the dressing and mix through.
You can decorate your salad with some additional basil leaves & a sprinkle of sesame, if you like. 🍃
*I always buy a pack of precooked ones and use about half of it. The rest is perfect for my morning-smoothies. 😋
I always choose organic produce whenever possible. It‘s not only better for my health (and yours, too), but also for our environment. 🌍💫💚
