Root, Root, Root… For Vegetables!

If you’re tired of the usual salad with lettuce, tomato and carrots, switch things up! Salads like this one, or our Southern Brown Rice Salad, are bursting with vibrant flavors and textures. If you want to incorporate new vegetables onto your plate, such as jicama and radish, along with whole grains, this Sesame Brown Rice salad is a must!

The best part is, this salad isn’t hard to make. All that you need to make this tasty salad is a knife and chopping board, a bowl and a mixing spoon.

Meal-Prep Pro

This salad is simple but requires a bit of preparation, so we suggest you make it into a meal-prep idea. Chop more vegetables than you need, so that you can keep them handy for meals throughout the week. Only mix together what is necessary and keep the remaining ingredients, like the oil blend and rice with vegetables, separate so they will keep for longer. When you’re ready to combine everything to take with you to the office, combine the ingredients and let the flavors marinate.

If you’re not a fan of spicy foods, simply omit the cayenne pepper in this dish. If, on the other hand, you like your food fiery, add extra cayenne or a squirt of Sriracha sauce to the final bowl. If you can’t find jicama at your local store, try using raw cabbage or kale, instead.
