Ingredients

  • 1 cup wild rice (uncooked)
  • 3 oz. spinach
  • 8 oz. grape tomatoes
  • 1 orange bell pepper
  • 1 cup corn (thawed, if frozen)
  • 3-4 green onions
  • Optional: hemp hearts, beans, fresh herbs
  • Juice from 1 lemon (about 3-4 Tbsp.)
  • 1 garlic clove (minced)
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil (optional)
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

Instructions

  1. Cook rice according to package directions. (1 cup rice to 3-4 cups water.)
  2. While rice is cooking, make the dressing: in a small bowl, whisk together all ingredients and set aside. (Feel free to add some herbs if you wish.)
  3. Prep the veggies: dice the bell pepper, slice green onions, halve/quarter the tomatoes, and roughly chop the spinach. Place all veggies in a large bowl.
  4. When rice is done cooking, drain excess water and add rice to the large veggie bowl. Toss to combine. (The heat from the rice will slightly wilt the spinach.)
  5. Whisk the dressing and pour over the salad. Toss to combine.
  6. Serve immediately, or chill for an hour or more to further develop flavors.
