Tips

  • Salad jars can be prepared completely up to 12 hours ahead. Keep, covered in refrigerator. For easy, spill-proof transport, assemble salads in containers with a screw top lid.
  • Replace microwaveable rice supergrain blend with any unflavoured wholegrain rice blend.
  • Check out the varieties available from the rice section in supermarkets, or substitute plain brown rice, if preferred.
