  • Tips:

  • 1.

    You can cook the rice a day ahead. Store in an airtight container in the fridge until needed. To take this to work, place salad, without dressing, in an airtight container. Pour dressing into a small snap-lock bag. Transport in a chiller bag and keep chilled until required. Drizzle with dressing just before serving.
