Rice Noodle Salad with Pineapple Thyme Dressing

Rice Noodle SaladAlthough Winter is inevitably on it’s way, and actually should be here already, I thought it a good idea to squeeze out one last salad recipe. A ‘farewell to Summer’ recipe as you may, and this one is yummy and experiments with different taste combinations.

The subtle, dry aroma and a slightly minty flavor of the Thyme, blends quite beautifully with the attractive sweet flavour of the pineapple. It’s an odd combination, but it works! and this Rice Noodle Salad with Pineapple Thyme dressing proves that! Continue reading

Coconut Brown Rice Bowl & Avocado a La Creme Dressing

Copy of Recipes (11)I was so ‘over-the-moon happy’ when I experimented with making this rice dish, as it turned out so damn tasty!

My salads that I’d make at home would either be naked, or drizzled with fresh lemon or orange juice, but never a full on salad dressing. Lately, however, I have been more adventurous, and have been experimenting with dressings and sauces, and balancing the flavors allowing them to complement a dish, rather than over power it.
