    1. First make the dressing. Put all the ingredients for the dressing into a large salad bowl and whisk together to combine.
    2. Just before serving, add all the salad ingredients, apart from the sesame seeds. Toss everything together to coat in the dressing, then sprinkle the sesame seeds on top. Serve at once.

    cook's tips

    *Rice absorbs roughly 3 times its weight in water when you cook it, so you'll need to cook about 100g of long-grain rice to give you 300g cooked rice. Keep it chilled until ready to add to the salad.

    Made a succulent summery salad with ease. I added some ripened Spanish avocados which needed using up and they gave the dish a nice depth and added texture. My partner enjoyed some coconut rice with his dish but as I am following a more restrictive eating plan I opted to serve it on a bed of greens. Chilling is key to the success of this dish. A nice mid-week treat!  -  09 Jul 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
