Fresh Summer Salad full of surpises


This summer heat just inspires me to create my own ideas of fresh salads, no heavy cooking in my kitchen, just too hot for it. So I open my refrigerator and find so many ingredients for a new version of a black rice salad.


Black rice has a nutty taste and smells like Basmati when cooked, I add some fresh turmeric and garlic to the broth. After being cooked to a good bite,  I toss it with Sesame seeds, fresh chopped cilantro, Sesame oil and seasonings to your taste.


 Adding some Coconut milk enhances the flavor of sesame.



Steamed fresh green beans…



…..with some vinaigrette, little of brown sugar and lemon pepper. Voila, happy summer !

    Wow what a beautiful and colorful salad. I love the light off the leaves. The ingredients here are so creative. I actually treated myself to a package of forbidden rice and I’m waiting for the perfect recipe for it. This could be it! Love the use of herbs here too.

  4. Looks delicious! Have never had black rice before, but will have to try it.
