Thai Sweet Rice Salad!

I am not a huge fan of sweet dishes, I am much more of a savory kind of girl, but this Thai Sweet Rice Salad has me swooning! 

It’s got crunch, a touch of sweet, zing, color, and creaminess.  It’s all things healthy and refreshing on a hot summers day.

When I cook rice I often make too much! I don’t know about you, but for me,  cooking for two is nearly impossible:) In not wanting to waste it I use up the leftover rice in other dishes like soups, fritters, wraps and other tasty delights throughout the week.  A sunny Vermont summer 80 degree day inspired this tasty creation!!


Thai Sweet Rice Salad

4 cups of cooked and cooled brown rice

1 cup of full fat coconut milk

1/2 cup of diced raw almonds

1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup of dried cranberries

1/4 cup of raisins

1 lime, seated than juiced

1″ chink of ginger, minced

1/2 tsp. Cinnamon

1/2 tsp. Cardamom

1 tsp. Vanilla

1/4 cup of maple syrup, or agave nectar, or brown sugar.

Pinch of sea salt

Mix all ingredients together and let sit for a half hour or so for the rice to absorb the milk and for the flavor to develop.


Enjoy!!
