Lazy Fried Rice Salad

Lazy Fried Rice Salad

I call this Lazy Fried Rice Salad because it’s like fried rice only not fried because I was in a hurry to get lunch made and threw the ingredients together to make a chilled salad instead. Or else it’s because I was just feeling lazy and had all the ingredients assembled but didn’t want to get out a pan and make fried rice. Whatever the reason I’m glad I did. I like the chewy texture of the rice with the crunchy freshness of the vegetables and the Tamari Roasted Almonds are like tasty little treasures hidden throughout the salad. Perfect for a fast lunch or side dish at dinner. Go ahead be a little lazy today too but still enjoy a delicious meal.



  • 1 tbsp unrefined toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp unrefined peanut oil
  • 1 tbsp mirin (if you don’t have mirin you can substitute white balsamic vinegar)
  • 2 tbsp low sodium tamari (if you follow a gluten free diet be sure to use gluten free tamari)
  • 1 tsp raw honey or coconut nectar
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic (powder)
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tbsp chives, minced
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)

  • 1/2 cup shredded diakon

  • 1/4 cup Tamari Roasted Almonds, chopped


  1. In a medium sized bowl whisk together the oils, mirin, tamari, honey, garlic,  ginger, chives and red pepper flakes (if using).
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and toss to combine.
