Sesame Rice Salad

Sesame Rice Salad

Rice salads have become my favorite way to use up leftover cooked rice.  My produce drawer is lacking this week, but carrots, sugar snap peas, cilantro, or red pepper would all be great additions here.

-2-3 cups cooked brown rice
-1 clove garlic, minced
-4 tsp sugar
-2 Tbsp sesame oil
-2 Tbsp soy sauce
-1 Tbsp lime juice
-1 Tbsp rice vinegar
-1/2 tsp ground ginger
-1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
-3 scallions, chopped
-1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
-1 can mandarin oranges, drained

Whisk together garlic, sugar, sesame oil, soy sauce, lime juice, rice vinegar, ginger, and red pepper flakes.  Toss with remaining ingredients.  Serve at room temperature.
