The best rice salad for lunch!

Slapped this together for lunch tomorrow and decided to have a bowl for a late dinner too. Full of tasty flavours and is so pretty with all the colourful veggies!

Rice Salad
2 carrots chopped in to small dice
1/2 small red onion, chopped to small dice
2 celery stalks, diced
12 cherry tomatoes cut in half
1/2 C cucumber, seeded and diced
1 jalapeno, seeded and small diced
2 C cooked brown rice (or quinoa would work too)

Dressing (from Oh She Glows)
3 Tbsp lime juice (or about 1 whole lime juiced)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp sea salt (I use Herbamare)

Chop and place all veggies and rice in to bowl.
Mix dressing ingredients and pour over veggies and rice.
Chill and eat!

Add-ins
Sometimes I add half of an avocado cubed and some cheese. Tonight was one of these nights with some dollops of herbes de provence chevres! Yum!
