Preparation and cooking time 40 minutes
Start by washing and draining your rice. Add your water to a saucepan along with the rice and bring to a boil. Add the salt. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until rice is soft and the water is absorbed. Put the rice in a bowl and allow it to cool.
Stir in the carrots, sprouts, cashews, bell peppers and scallions. In a bowl whisk together the remaining ingredients to make a dressing to pour over your rice mixture. Serve.
