Black Bean and Wild Rice Salad
My daughter had a similar salad at her friends house and begged me to make it. Can use any dressing with it but does taste best with Poppyseed dressing. Has tons of fiber and great for a side dish or as a main dish.
cooked wild rice/white rice combination
seasoned black beans, drained well
diced green bell pepper
diced yellow or orange bell pepper
diced jalapeno (optional)
sweet corn (optional)
Prepare both the wild rice and white rice as directed on package. Cool and combine together. I quick cool by putting in the fridge after it cooks and while I'm dicing the vegetables.
While rice is cooling dice up all the vegetables.
Once the rice has cooled to touch (doesn't have to be cold) add all other ingredients. Mix well and serve with creamy poppyseed dressing.
