Rice is an ideal staple to take camping. It doesn’t require refrigeration, takes up little space and can be cooked in a pot over an open fire. This salad uses cold cooked rice, so perfect if you had a stew or curry the night before and have leftover rice. The dressing can be made in a jar and keeping with the theme of easy prep, you can use frozen mixed veg.

3 cups cooked rice (1 cup uncooked rice)
2 cups vegetables (frozen mixed vegetables or a combination of capsicum, carrot, celery, beans…)
1–2 spring onions, finely chopped
¼ cup peanut butter
1 clove garlic, crushed
1cm of fresh ginger root, finely grated
2 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
¼ cup water fresh coriander for garnish

Place the rice, vegetables and spring onions in a large bowl.
In a jar add the remaining ingredients and shake until well combined. Pour over the rice and vegetables, toss to combine.
Serve garnished with some fresh coriander.
