brown rice salad green with tobasco dressing

This is one of those easy toss together salads – but it delivers on all levels: taste, texture and flavour. I love the taste and the crunchiness of the brown rice and I’m completely addicted to baby marrow spaghetti. The avocado adds a lovely creaminess and the tabasco dressing adds a hint of heat that it needs.
