Pomegranate & Orange Rice Salad…

A refreshing salad for the warmer days. We love adding fruit into salads, it just adds a little extra flavour and some sweetness that we sometimes crave. And it pairs so well with certain foods. Pomegranates are a great fruit to add as they can be a bit boring just as a fruit so adding them into a salad or even a simple fruit salad is a great way of including them into your diet.

This dish is a perfect side dish at a BBQ or something you can make and just leave in the fridge for a few days and grab when needed, simply make in advance and store in an airtight container for up to 3 days, we have stored it longer than this but use your own judgement.
