Today I'm making an An Asian Salad! Great for lunch (leftovers welcome)

 I love Italian Food  but some times I just have to explore other foods and  I have always loved food with an Asian flair..Even in my home decorating I throw in an Asian flower or plant now and again..



I like basic salads like Mom used to make but I love to try new and interesting ones too!

If you don't liven a salad up now and again they go from dull to boring if you know what I mean so try something new. I think you will like this Asian Salad.  It is one of my favorites. I'm trying to remember where I got this one but right now I don't have a clue.  It probably was in my Prevention Magazine.  I get lots of my recipes from their magazine. I find their recipes healthy and interesting and to keep me motivated on a healthy track I must try different recipes or make up some myself and most times I try to stay away from mayo. This dressing is light with a hint of sweet and you can serve it warm or chilled..  It just depends on you!

Happy Cooking from my kitchen to yours~

4 cups cooked brown rice ( I used 2  pkg. Brown Rice Boil in a bag)
1/4 cup peanut oil
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 carrot diced
1/2 cup chopped snow peas
1/4 cup rice vinegar (if you are on a gluten free diet, make sure the vinegar is gluten free)
1 stalk diced celery
1/2 diced red or yellow pepper
2 tablespoons chopped parsley( I used dried)

In a small bowl combine peanut oil, salt, pepper, sugar and sesame oil..Whisk until sugar dissolves..Pour over rice.. Steam carrots and snow peas, drain. ..In a large bowl place steam veggies..Stir in rice and toss until all is coated..Serve warm or Chill.. I liked this recipe both ways.
