Black Rice Tropical Salad

February14

Perhaps on Valentine’s Day, you were checking this space for a long dissertation on love.  In my mind, the giving of love, is not about this day.  It is about every other day in a year.  My only other thought, is that I have found joy and happiness in living my life as a love “distributor”.  Love someone new on this day.

I have recently discovered the loveliness of black rice.  Last evening, D and I headed out to an Ash Wednesday service and I wanted us to eat quite light.  So this was perfect! Actually better than perfect.  We were blown away by the flavours-like summertime in your mouth.

    Interestingly, I was given the rice in Toronto and then came home and searched for the recipe. So I don’t actually know where it can be purchased in Winnipeg but I will watch our for it.
