Salad Base:

  • 2 cups cooked mixed brown rice and quinoa (I use the pre-cooked Seeds of Change mix)
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, chopped (store-bought rotisserie chicken works like a charm)
  • 2 cups tomatoes, chopped

Creamy Basil Dressing:

  • 1/2 cup walnuts (can sub almonds)
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup basil
  • 1/2 cup parsley
  • 1 clove garlic
  • juice of two lemons
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Toss the brown rice / quinoa, chicken, and tomatoes together.
  2. For the dressing, whiz everything together in the food processor until mostly smooth and a little bit creamy. Taste and adjust as necessary.
  3. Pour the dressing over the salad ingredients – letting it all sit together for 30 minutes helps the flavors become x-tra delicious.


  1. Other add-in possibilities: greens – I like to add a handful of chopped baby spinach just before serving, Mozzarella or Parmesan cheese – I mean, not super healthy, but your secret is safe with me! pepperoncinis for a salty tangy bite, roasted corn, and maybe more seeds or nuts like pepitas, pistachios, or almonds. Possibilities abound! Go wild.
  2. This salad lasts for a few days (like, 3 max) in the fridge once it’s tossed. The tomatoes water the whole thing down a bit, so keep those separate until just before serving if you can.
