BARLEY, SWEETCORN & AVOCADO SALAD TOSSED WITH CHILLI LIME DRESSING
Tonight for dinner I made this fantastically flavourful barley, sweetcorn and avocado salad, tossed with an incredibly punchy chilli lime dressing. I served it alongside some delicious organic beef sausages. The perfect summer dish packed full of crunchy textures, vibrant colours, and fresh bright flavours. Enjoy!
4 sweetcorn, cooked and kernels sliced
1 cup Sunrice brown rice & barley mix*
1 red onion, diced
a large handful of fresh coriander, roughly chopped
a large handful of Italian parsley, roughly chopped
1 tsp chilli powder, or chilli flakes
a good glug of extra virgin olive oil
juice of 2 limes
*The Sunrice mix is available in supermarkets nationwide.
Cook the brown rice & barley according to the manufacturers instructions, set aside to cool.
Once cooled, toss with the remaining ingredients, and then season to taste with sea salt and ground pepper.
