Rice salad with prawns


Be the first to make this!

A colourful, crunchy vegetable salad tossed in a tastebud-tingling, Asian-style dressing, this dish gives a great vitamin boost. Soy sauce is high in salt, so no extra seasoning is needed for the dressing.

  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.


3 portions vegetables


*Rice absorbs roughly three times its weight in water when you cook it, so you'll need to cook about ½ cup (100 g) long-grain rice to give you 2 cups (300 g) cooked rice. Keep it chilled until ready to add to the salad.
*To save time, you could use a bag of fresh stir-fry vegetables.
