A bit of a fuss pot maybe.  ??? I put cranberries sometimes.

Thanks for bumping this one up CC. We had it for dinner tonight with some crispy coated chicken pieces. I thought I would have some for lunch tomorrow, but the kids ate a reasonable amount (they struggle with rice salads, but made a good effort and seemed to like it) and DH kept going back until it was all gone and was still asking if there was a bit more.

I made this for the first time yesterday as I was keen on having a salad. Thanks to Cookie for pointing me to this recipe :)
Followed few of the tweaks suggested by others, put in cucumber, green capsicum(as I didnt hv red), spring onions, currants, parsley, sunflower seeds, pepitas and chopped cashews. And also added 2 tbsp brown sugar, it was just YUMMMMM!!

And seriously being low GI, felt full for a longg time :) Will surely be making it more often as it is really good and healthy!
And hubby loved it who is not a salad fan, so win win :)

Bumping this salad - I make this regularly and love it.  It is very easy and I use a mixture of 75% rice and 25% quinoa as the base.  I'm easy on the sugar (c. 1/4 tsp) and I've used mixes of macadamias, hazelnuts and cashew nuts - depends upon what I have available at any one time.
