Quinoa, Red Rice & Pine Nut Picnic Salad

You don’t have to be on a picnic to have this, but it’s a really great one to pull out amidst the soggy sandwiches and packets of sausages. It tastes just as good warm, room temperature or cold, so it's a low maintenance make ahead treat that's full of goodness. Really fresh and filling it’s a winner for lunchboxes as well. Serve with roast chicken, salmon, tofu or halloumi for a great lunch.
  • 2 cups Red Camargue and Wild Rice
  • 1 cup Quinoa
  • ½ cup pine nuts, toasted
  • ½ cup cranberries, chopped
  • 1 cup tightly packed watercress or rocket
  • ½ pointed cabbage finely shredded/sliced
  • ¼ cup basil leaves, chopped roughly
  • ¼ cup parsley, chopped roughly
  • (Optional 1/2 cup cooked broad beans) Dressing:
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper
Cook the rice and quinoa as the packet directs, all are slightly different, and when cooked drain and spread out in a large baking tray to cool, and let the steam evaporate without causing clumps. Roast the pine nuts on a baking sheet for 6 minutes at 170 until just turning brown. In a large bowl toss together all the ingredients, and pack into Tupperware without dressing. Pour dressing contents into a jam jar and shake before using. Drizzle dressing over to serve.

I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
