Avocado Brown Rice Salad

Back to school means moms and dads need to throw together quick, delicious and healthy meals for themselves too. It can’t just always be about the kids! I think the best salads are the most enjoyable to eat, with a nice balance of textures from crunchy to smooth to grainy. This is just that. Taking some brown rice, lightly-toasted pine nuts, seedless cucumbers, thinly sliced red onions and crumbled gorgonzola cheese and lightly tossing it with avocado oil and lemon juice, this was the perfect backdrop to thick slices of avocado. This Avocado Brown Rice Salad is perfect with grilled chicken or fish and delicious cold or at room temperature. I loved it perfectly as is!
