Summer Strawberry, Brown Rice & Cucumber Salad (gluten-free, dairy-free) | Liezl Jayne
SUMMER STRAWBERRY, BROWN RICE & CUCUMBER SALAD A filling, refreshing, tasty and healthy salad for summer I love summer - but the salads in summer are not always filling (and I like to feel like I'm still getting a decent meal on hot summer's day, even if I'm not craving a hot winter stew). This salad is both filling (from the brown rice, avocado and almonds) and is still super summery and fresh with the help of strawberries and other fresh ingredients like cucumber and baby spinach. This recipe is plant-based as well as being gluten, dairy and refined-sugar free - Plus it contains some protein (almonds, brown rice), healthy fats (avocado, almonds) and some good whole carbs (brown rice, beets and strawberries). So yes - it's fresh and summery... But it's still a well balanced meal (if you watch my YouTube videos, you've probably heard me say that before). This might be my favorite summer salad ever! Hope you love it as much as I do! Liezl XO THE RECIPE INGREDIENTS: -1/2 cup
