Thai Wild Rice Salad with Mango
This scrumptious salad has been shared with us by Tenina Holder from Cooking with Tenina. Mangoes not in season? Canned mango is perfectly fine to use. Don't have wild rice? Use brown. We think this salad is extra delicious served alongside some grilled chicken or salmon.
Recipe Tester Feedback: “This rice salad was a hit! With a mild chilli flavour, it wasn’t too overpowering. Great by itself or even with BBQ grilled chicken." - Kerry
