Rice Salad with Fresh Veggies

With today's heat I didn't want to spend a lot of time in a hot kitchen tonight. This salad came together quickly as we had a lot of cooked brown rice left over from some wraps we made last night. I just mixed in whatever we had on hand with the rice - fresh red bell pepper and corn from the farmers market today, a cucumber from our garden, cabbage from last weekend's market, and also some diced celery and shredded carrot. The dressing I'll call a citrus vinaigrette - lemon juice, orange juice, soy sauce, mustard, garlic, flax oil and olive oil. I did turn on the stove to boil water and cook more fresh corn but that was worth it.

Sounds like the perfect summer meal. The heat can sure be the pits.

We had fresh corn tonight and left over beans. No cooking here either.
