  • To cook the rice, in a saucepan, add 1 cup of rice to 2.5 cups of cold water and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered for 25 minutes. Remove from heat and stand, covered for 5 minutes. If you are not sure how, we have a helpful “How to Cook rice section” to make you a pro.

    Tip: For a quicker alternative, we also have a range of ready rices, that are ready to eat in 90 seconds!

  • Leave rice to cool.

  • Shake the cider vinegar, sesame oil, honey and soy in a clean glass jar. Pour over the salad ingredients and toss with clean hands. Serve immediately.
