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.
