Summer rice salad

This high fibre dish is a great summer lunch or accompaniment for a barbeque. The high levels of antioxidants will help to counteract some of the harmful carcinogens created when food gets overcooked on the barbeque!

40g pine nuts or chopped walnuts/almonds

100g sweet corn or other vegetable

40g raisins (optional)
