I almost always have a large bowl of cooked brown rice on hand at home. My husband is a big fan of rice and we usually have Crispy Fried Rice for dinner at least once a week. I had a bit of leftover rice left at the end of the week and threw together this delicious cold salad. For a bit of fun I decided to take half of the recipe and make it into cute bite sized rice balls. This salad is also super yummy wrapped in a Nori wrap. Any way you serve it it’s sure to be delicious.

Place a small amount of the rice mixture into a plastic baggie and add either a diced avocado or cucumber.
- To make into rice balls, mix together all the ingredients except the avocado and cucumber. Place a small amount of the rice mixture into a small plastic baggie and place a piece of avocado or cucumber in the center.
Gather the plastic baggie together and twist at the base to form your rice ball.
