This Asian inspired Fried Rice Salad is absolutely delicious! Just a handful of ingredients with a superb sesame oil dressing.
The idea of making a salad using cooked and chilled brown rice really intrigued me. The original recipe asked for ingredients I didn't have on hand so I decided to take some liberties with this Delicious Fried Rice Salad.
All the ingredients in this recipe include all the usual suspects except the Sugar Snap Peas. I think this is the first time I make a salad with this awesome vegetable. Times 2 for the Kale. I've had a Kale smoothie before and a Kale salad from a restaurant but this is the first time I have made something with both ingredients.
I will leave it up to you on how to make your brown rice but I love making rice in my Instant Pot. It can be a little tricky but once you get the hang of it, it's so easy to make!
Instead of the sweet corn I used in this recipe, you can substitute for baby corn which will give this salad a different appearance without changing the flavor.
One of these days I am also going to make this salad with some chopped grape tomatoes. Tomatoes aren't used very often in Asian cuisine but I think they would add a bit of color and flavor to this wonderful friend rice salad.
