Avocado Brown Rice Salad

Avocado Brown Rice Salad

In this week's Delish Salad Series with e-cloth, I threw together a salad using brown rice and some refrigerator staples at my house. As I said before, I think the best salads that are the most enjoyable to eat are ones that have a nice balance of textures from crunchy to smooth to grainy. This is just that. 

Taking some brown rice, lightly-toasted pinenuts, seedless cucumbers, thinly sliced red onions and crumbled gorgonzola cheese and lightly tossing it with avocado oil and lemon juice, this was the perfect backdrop to thick slices of avocado. 

This Avocado Brown Rice Salad is perfect with grilled chicken or fish and delicious cold or at room temperature. I loved it perfectly as is!

Cleaning the fridge with e-cloth

This week I am cleaning the house top to bottom. When I finally to do the fridge, I realized how gross our fridge door was! I don't even remember the last time I cleaned that door! GROSS! 

e-cloth wash cloths were just what I needed to do the job. Using nothing but water, my grimy and sticky refrigerator door was spotless!
