Black rice is cooked for a long time, unlike ordinary rice. It should be prepared in advance and cooled, following the instructions on the package. Prepare all the products for the salad. I defrosted the broccoli, disassembled it into small inflorescences and boiled it for a couple of minutes. It remained bright green. Red onions should not be put in a salad. I put myself a very small onion, cut into thin half rings. Peel the nuts and chop them not very finely. It is better to take dried cranberries in a salad, it is sweeter.
