Rice salad avocado boats with almond orange dressing

avocado and rice boats

Hmm. What a name. I couldn’t think of what else to describe them as 🙂

This is a really light, simple and healthy meal. Brown rice salad on it’s own can be yummy but doesn’t rock my world usually. But mixed in an almond, ginger and orange dressing and served in an avocado – now that is quite yummy! The creaminess of the avocado is delicious with the salad and tangy dressing.

Rice salad

2 cups of cooked brown rice

1 chopped red capsicum

1 purple onion, diced

2 celery stalks, diced

1/4 cup currants

1/4 cup pepitas

1/2 diced orange (flesh)

Mix together and add Almond, ginger and orange dressing and stir through.

Halve an avocado and peel off the skin. You may need to scoop a little more of the avocado out of the middle to make way for the rice salad – but it’s easy to add more rice salad to your plate later if required! Top with coriander to serve.
