Even though wild rice has long been thought of as a wintry dish, this salad is a great way to get whole grains on the table during the warmer months, while using up your garden herbs.

Ingredients

  1. 1 cup wild rice
  2. 8 cups cold water
  3. Sea salt
  4. 2 tablespoons finely chopped chives
  5. 2 tablespoons finely chopped mint
  6. 2 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
  7. 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  8. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  1. In a large saucepan, cover the rice with the water, add 1 teaspoon of salt and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over moderately low heat until the wild rice is tender but still chewy, about 1 hour. Drain the wild rice well.
  2. Toss the wild rice with the chives, mint, parsley, lemon juice and olive oil. Season with salt and serve.
