Coconut Lime Rice Salad

Ingredients

1 cup jasmine rice
½ cup unsweetened, shredded coconut, toasted
¼ cup sliced almonds, toasted
2 limes, zested and juiced
1 small shallot, minced
2 tbsp.  SOOC Coconut White Balsamic
3-4 tbsp. SOOC Persian Lime Olive Oil
Big pinch ORANGE-LIME VANCOUVER ISLAND SEA SALT

Directions

Preheat oven to 350*F.

Cook the rice, put in bowl and fluff with a fork.

Spread coconut and almonds on a baking sheet, and toast for about 4 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Make sure you keep an eye on them; they can go from toasty to burnt in a matter of seconds. Set aside to cool. Once cool, toss with lime zest.

In a small jar, combine the juice from the limes, minced shallot, SOOC Coconut White Balsamic, SOOC Persian Lime Olive Oil and a big pinch of ORANGE-LIME VANCOUVER ISLAND SEA SALT.  Shake well and pour over rice.  Fold gently with a rubber spatula. Add the toasted coconut and almond mixture to the rice.

Serve warm, room temperature or chilled.

Delicious with grilled fish, seafood or Pad Thai.
