Method

The Method

Cook the rice in the microwave according to packet instructions and then spread it out on to a tray to ensure it cools quickly. If you are using leftover rice simply run your fingers through it to separate out the grains.

Using a small sharp knife, cut the pepper in half and remove and discard the core and seeds, then cut into dice. Cut the cucumber in half again and cut into half-moon shaped slices. Cut the cherry tomatoes in halves and cut the beetroot into small chunks if large and into quarters if baby.

Fold the baby mixed leaves into the cooled rice with the cucumber and cherry tomatoes. Season with a little salt and some freshly ground black pepper and fold in to combine. Divide among bowls, then scatter the beetroot on top and crumble over the goat’s cheese. Drizzle with the dressing to serve

Prepare Ahead

This salad could be made in advance and kept in a suitable airtight container with the dressing in a separate small pot in the fridge and would happily be transported - just remember the fork to eat it!

Ranch Dressing

Makes 9 servings (contains approx 30 kcal in each 1 tbsp serving)

The Method

Peel the garlic and then use a garlic crusher to crush or the fine side of a box grater if you find that easier.

Put all the ingredients into a screw-topped jar and season lightly with salt, if using and add plenty of freshly ground black pepper - a ¼ teaspoon is about right. Then screw the lid back on tightly. Shake hard until the dressing has thickened and emulsified. Store in the fridge for up to 1 week.

Prepare Ahead

This dressing will last up to 3 days in the fridge in a suitable container.
