With the hot weather approaching I am looking for recipes that are easy to make, filling, and don't heat up the kitchen too much. I know I can always make salad, with veggies, but I am looking for something a little more filling. My boyfriend and I aren't fussy eaters so I'm hoping to get some great recipies with a lot of variety. We also have access to many international speciality shops, so finding some out of the way ingredients may not be an issue either. I am hoping that some of you would like to share recipes for any cold rice or barely salads that you might have? I'm looking forward to trying them out!

I m writing down a very easy rice salad for you, i wish hope you like it. it is very simple and you can make it without investing much time into it. first make rice. i hope you know it, if not you can take one cup rice with 2 cups of water and let it cook. make your rice salad the night before , so the flavours will meld. before you cover and refrigerate overnight , be sure to add a touch of your dressing to moisten the salad. right before you serve , add the rest of your vinaigrette. turn the rice into a bowl , a big bowl. mixing with two forks , add 1/2 cup chopped green onions , 1/2 cup chopped parsely, 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes, and two tbsp capers , drained. salt and pepper to taste . dress with oil and lemon juice.
