Sweet and Savory Wild Rice Salad is the perfect main course or side dish. Make it a meatless main or use it as a delicious side salad.
My husband is a fairly traditional eater, oh, don’t get me wrong, he will try anything, but on a normal night at home, Vince wants food that he loves. So whenever I try something new, instead of asking if he likes it, I ask, “Should I make this again?”
Well, this Wild Rice Salad is a home run. Vince loves it and begs me to make it weekly. Be sure to get real wild rice, not mixed with any other rices. It is dark brown, maybe not the most appetizing color, but when those grains bloom in the simmering water, they become chewy little bits of heaven.
And the dressing gives just enough sweet with a good balance of savory to make this a go to as a side dish or light entrée. You can also chop up some cooked chicken breast and add it if you want meat with your meal.
The best part of this salad, in addition to it tasting so yummy, is that wild rice has many health benefits. It’s high in fiber, low in calories and sodium and contains an amazing amount of antioxidants, which helps with aging!
