Rice Salad

Being a Bong, we have a special affinity with rice πŸ˜‰ I can eat rice for breakfast, lunch and dinner πŸ˜‰ even snack on it πŸ˜› Such a desire will put my physician in a coma πŸ˜‰

Rice can be made in millions of ways and can accompany endless cuisine. Since I was not in a great mood to cook for myself, I used some leftover rice here and added lots of veggies to pacify my conscience on the health part πŸ˜‰

Presenting here is Rice Salad, a part of the Refreshing Platter.

  2. i agree with you, I can eat rice any time of the day, except for breakfast! Eating it with veggies is a favorite way, that’s why I always like to have some in the refrigerator or freezer for such an occasion.
