How to make A Vegan Rice Salad - The Recipe

Updated on October 4, 2010

This is One of Those Quickie Type of Salad

Its summer, and too hot to schlep into the kitchen for too long.

So you scoot around your organic vegetable patch and pluck the greens, that is if you are that organised! I am not, so I have to get my greens from reliable green crocer who does stock good qualty organic vegetables at a reasonable price.

Unlike those supermarkets, who assume because it is a green product:-

  1. That we the purchasers are green
  2. That they can add green to their prices
  3. that they sneak in some items of dubious origin and place them in the organics section.

My pet objection to supermarkets, is showing today.

Slap this with some of the cold left over rice, probably the rice you were going to make a fried rice dish.

Heres the twist, skip the Mayo, use Olive Oil, you will be amazed at the difference in taste.

An Ideal Summer Salad

Rice Salad


2 - 3 cups of cold cooked organic rice

1 tablespoon of desiccated coconut

4 teaspoons of sesame seeds

125g of brown mushrooms

½ a butter or any other lettuce

½ a cos lettuce

4 -6 cherry tomatoes

2 sprigs of spring onions

1 - 2 stalks of celery

Virgin Olive Oil or for dressing

Non Oidated Sea Salt



Wash and trim all of the salad ingredients.

Slice the mushrooms, spring onions, tomatoes and the celery. Chop or shred the leafy vegetables.

Combine the coconut and sesame seeds with the cold rice.

Add the salad ingredients to the rice. Add a generous sprinkling of olive oil , a good pinch or two of salt and then give the salad a final stir.

Serve well chilled, on its own or as a part of a super salad buffet.

      Hi Rodney,

      Stopping in to say hello. I love rice and I love salad - so will try this one for sure. Sounds delicious.

      Hope all is well with you. I have made it a goal to make $100 USD extra every month. It's going well, I'm on my $700 month and so far am up to speed. I got a new writing job last month for two travel companies (Hotelscheap and Kathica Travel) - $20 an article. Also am writing for Demand Studios for $15 an article) Stop by and see if they are anything you would be interested in.

      Yes efeglo, she does love it, I actually enjoy cooking, and eating my own food. 99% of the meals in our house have been cooked by me.

      If I am concocting something new, or something I have not done for a long time, my camera is with me. I dont use tripods, and try to use low light where I can.
