Make this rice salad laden with fresh fruit and veg, for a delicious light meal that can be eaten for lunch or dinner.

  1. Bring a pan of lightly salted water to the boil and cook the rice for 12-15 minutes until tender. Drain and refresh with cold water. Set aside. Place the apples into a large bowl with the lemon juice and toss well.
  2. Heat the oil in a large heavy based frying pan and cook the shredded sprouts over a high heat for 2-3 minutes until just softened. Remove from the heat. Add the rice to the apples and toss well, then add the sprouts, celery, pomegranate seeds, chilli, herbs and poppy seeds and toss well to mix.  
  3. Place the dressing ingredients into a screw top jar and shake vigorously to mix. Pour over the salad and toss again to mix. Season generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper and toss again. Serve with roasted or griddled meat and a simple green salad.
