This one is a beauty from my internet friend Deborah. Tastes even better than it looks, and it’s full of healthy ingredients. Easy to make, can be frozen, and just fantastic for a barbeque or picnic. Makes a lot, easily enough for 8 – 10.
Wild rice and roasted corn salad
1 package Reese’s uncooked wild rice
2 cups frozen roasted corn nibblets (Trader Joe’s works perfectly here)
1 cup finely chopped celery
3/4 cup shredded carrot
3/4 cup Craisins, or dried cranberries or cherries
2/3 cup toasted sunflower seeds
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion (I left this out)
1/3 cup raspberry vinegar (I used orange champagne vinegar)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Cook rice according to package directions; omit the salt and fat. Cool.
Combine rice, corn and all the other ingredients in a large bowl. Toss well. Chill overnight to blend flavors. May be served either cold or room temp. Both great.
