For some reason I make wild rice salad every summer. This would be just as good in another season but I only seem to make it in summer.

I guess because there is such an awful lot of good produce around in summer and I usually just toss whatever I have lying around or leftover into the salad.

It can be served warm or cold.

Wild Rice Salad:

  • Long grain rice
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 strong yellow onion, diced
  • 1 celery stick diced,
  • Lots of fresh parsley, chopped
  • Handful of golden raisins, craisins, or currants
  • Pine nuts or sliced almonds
  • Chicken broth
  • S&P
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Olive oil

Cook rice according to directions but cook in chicken broth not water. Dice all veggies and add to bowl. When rice is done add to veggies, season w/S&P and toss. Add 1-2TBS vinegar & drizzle with olive oil.

Serve warm or cold. Use any veggies you have on hand. I have used fennel, zuchinni and just random things I have on hand.
