RICE: BROWN RICE SALAD WITH ASPARAGUS & MINT

 

I never thought I'd be excited about brown rice, until now. I'm constantly faced with the challenge of coming up with inventive dishes to keep my clients happy and eating healthy. This recipe came about as a way to jazz up yet another bowl of the stuff.
