This Wild Rice Arugula Salad is topped with sliced almonds, dried cranberries & a homemade vinaigrette. Perfect winter salad.
Prepare the wild rice according to the package instructions.* Wild rice takes longer than traditional rice to cook - expect it to take at least 60 minutes.
While the rice is cooking, combine the rest of the salad ingredients in a bowl. Toss to combine and place in the fridge.
Prepare the dressing by combining all of the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Set aside until ready to use.
To serve, add the cooked wild rice** to the salad and drizzle with the dressing. Toss and serve.
*Follow the cooking instructions on your wild rice package. Swap half of the cooking water in the instructions with broth.
**You can serve this salad warm or cold. If you want to serve it cold, allow the rice to cool before adding it to the salad.
