Forbidden Rice Salad

I love to cook with forbidden rice, and when you try this recipe you will too. Forbidden rice has a nutty flavor, soft texture, and awesome purple color. My customers are lucky that I don't eat it all.
  • 5 oz. forbidden rice cooked and cooled
  • 1 bunch chopped scallion
  • 1 cup toasted pine nuts
  • 2 cups thinly sliced green cabbage
  • 2cups golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup toasted sesame oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

In a large bowl mix all the ingredients, season with salt and pepper, and serve in your favorite bowl. It doesn't get any easier than that! Forbidden rice can be found in Whole Foods , gormet food stores, or ordered directly from What, if anything, would you do different?
