Brown rice salad
For the salad
1 1⁄2 cups brown rice
1 red capsicum, chopped (red bell pepper)
1 green capsicum, chopped
3 spring onions, chopped
1⁄2 cup raisins or 1⁄2 cup sultana
1⁄2 cup cashews or 1⁄2 cup peanuts
For the dressing
1⁄2 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons soya sauce
1 crushed garlic clove
black pepper

Cook brown rice until tender, allow to cool.
To prepare the dressing put the ingredients into a large jar with a tight fitting lid and shake well. Put aside.
In a large bowl add the rice and all other salad ingredients.
Pour over the dressing and mix through. The flavours improve on standing as the rice soaks in the dressing. Enjoy!
