This is a rice salad that uses black rice. Thank you Andrea (from www.thehomeschoolingjourney.blogspot.com) for this excellent recipe. I made it one morning to eat for lunch. I could not help but sneak many spoonfuls of this salad all morning before serving it for lunch. I ate it for lunch 3 days in a row!
1 1/2 cups black rice, cooked
1/2 yellow or red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 green onion sliced thinly
1/2 cups crushed pineapple
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon raw can sugar
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup kale, diced into bit size pieces
3/4 cup chopped chicken or marinated tofu (optional)
Cook rice according to the package directions. While rice is cooking make dressing by combining oil, sugar, vinegars, salt and pepper in a blender. Blend until smooth. Adjust seasonings to taste. When the rice is done rinse it with cool water. Place it in a salad bowl. Add the bell pepper, onion, pineapple, kale, chicken or tofu, almonds and dressing. Mix together and blend. Chill for at least 1 hour. Enjoy!
