Are you tired of eating the same meals for lunch every day? This extra tasty yet filling salad will change that. It's balanced, light and so easy to assemble once you've cooked the rice. Also, there are no dominant flavours in this salad, making it a great salad to get your kids excited about vegetables.

My favourite way to enjoy this salad is pre-prepared the night before and taken to work in my lunch box. It's packed with simple and comforting flavours such as celery, leek, cheese and cashews. And with the white rice as a base for the salad, I find it gives me the energy boost my body craves and gets me through those last few hours at work. 

Overall this cold rice salad is nutritious, satisfying and suitable for both lunch and dinner. Give it a try.
