Salad with brown rice, green beans and pickled onions

Before we see what you need for this salad, here are some more ideas for delicious summer salads:

Today’s salad is to be prepared. There are green beans in the salad and the peanuts go well with it, so shake them happily in the salad. There is also brown rice in the salad and we really recommend it. It’s much better for you than regular white – it satisfies you more and you digest it even longer, which means hunger comes back later too. It is already true that brown rice cooks a little longer than white, so cook it the day/evening before watching a movie or series, then drain the cooked and let cool and store in the fridge.

If you have leftover pickled onions, we suggest using them in this fantastic vegan! a corn-chickpea ball burger.

The salad also stands out very well, so you can prepare it in advance. Just stir before serving, add the avocado and ta-da – a wonderful lunch or dinner is ready. It will also be ideal for work, school or during a trip or picnic.

Now take a look at the video of the preparation of this wonderful colorful salad.

Good race !
