Wild Rice Salad
Summer salads made with healthy varieties of rice are an easy way to add whole grains to the diet. Whip up a large batch of wild rice salad each weekend and store it in the fridge to make impromptu meals and snacks all week long. Add fresh local vegetables and herbs and serve with just-picked greens or as a side dish alongside grilled meats or fish. Easy and delish!
