Angela says: "This is a salad I am always asked to do whenever my family has a get-together. I have been making it for the past 17 years. I recommend cooking Sunrise brown rice and using Cerebos sweet fruit chutney. I also use a dark red apple and drizzle the lemon juice on top until I assemble the whole salad. Almonds or cashew nuts can be substituted for pine nuts."
