This vegetarian brown rice salad is delicious and simple to make. With red capsicum, sultanas, spring onion and peanuts this salad is full of texture and flavours.

I’ve used a simple lemon and olive oil dressing to flavour the salad, with cumin and honey (optional) to add some sweetness and spiciness to it. If you’re vegan you can easily leave out the honey, and instead try using some agave syrup as a sweetener. 

This salad is perfect to make as a big batch and take for lunch during the week – I find that the flavours really enhance after a day or so.
