Mango and Black Rice Salad

Here’s a very short and sweet recipe for my Sweet and Salty Mango and Black Rice Salad. I picked some black rice up when visiting The Refillery because it’s the only place I have seen it in Jozi!

Black rice is known as ‘forbidden rice’ or ‘emperors rice’ because it used to be reserved for Chinese Royalty. Besides being gluten-free, it is higher in fibre than white rice, Black Rice also boasts 8.5g of protein per 100g! Here’s the recipe for a side salad using this awesome ingredient, or if you are feeling hungry – a salad for one!
