Leftover speedy warm lamb rice salad recipe

3 ratings

Using microwave rice for this salad makes it so quick to make – ideal for a throw-it-together meal when time is short. This recipe is a mouthwatering leftovers idea from our soy honeyed leg of lamb dish. The leftover meat needs to be thoroughly reheated until piping hot and should never be reheated more than once.
