We're not usually fans of brown rice in this house, but in saying that we've yet to cook it in the TM. I think I will make this tomorrow to have on the side of a quiche. The pictures are making my mouth water! :D

Thanks for the recipe Thermo18.  :) I have made it twice so far and the second time a double batch. 

I double the sauce and also added sunflower and pumpkin seeds, and used a packet of mixed cranberries and something else.

LouLouB I have never been able to cook brown rice properly, the TM does a wonderful job.

LouLou, I was never a fan of brown rice but have started cooking it in the TMX and have converted to all brown rice for myself, last night with dinner DD and DH both decided to try a little and also preferred it over the white so maybe it's something to do with the cooking. Worth another try. I'm going to make this on the weekend.

I've made this to go with a BBQ chicken for tea tonight. I added the brown sugar and garlic to the dressing, used cashews and dried cherries, used corn in place of capsicum and a shallot soaked in water in place of the spring onion. I also added some left over white rice. Hope all my changes taste OK.

Is this only a small serve of the salad? One cup of brown rice doesn't expand much on cooking so there isn't much in the bowl and I'm a little worried about the amount of dressing to rice.

Wonder  I wouldn't say its a small serve of salad, we are a family of 4 and we will have some left over for the next day. It does seem a lot of sauce for 1 cup of brown rice but it works as it soaks in. I like the idea of corn and will trying that next time, hope this helps  :D

Once all the bits and pieces are added it does bulk up a little. I'm sure I'll have leftover as DS has already said he won't try it!

DH and I both thought this was lovely, DS wouldn't even try it and DD wasn't home so left overs for my lunch today. Once the salad had been sitting for a while it did bulk up quite a bit more than i thought so would easily be enough for 4 or 5 as a side salad. I used up bits and pieces I had in the pantry/fridge and it worked well.

We have this salad often as it's on DH likes, he's not a big salad eater, but he's getting there lol. I have started adding a small amount of quinoa to the rice when I cook it.
I child-proofed my house, but they still get in!

Tricky girl. You can actually buy quinoa and rice mixed together now. I used this and told the mob I had run out of rice! 8)

Bumping this so I can find fit easily.
This is so yummy and quick and easy to make. Added feta cheese, sunflower seed, walnuts, died apricots, cranberries, tomato spring onion, carrot and cucumber. I cook extra brown rice, freeze for a quick salad.

Made this yesterday and I agree with everyone else ... delicious - I made it 50 / 50 brown rice and quinoa and added some segmented oranges and alfalfa and broccoli sprouts that were ready for eating.
