The holiday we’ve all been waiting for is just around the corner and I can’t wait! If you need some inspiration for a recipe to please your family and friends, you’ve come to the right place. Memorial Day is a day to enjoy the weather and good company, so I’ve created this Wild Rice Salad to keep things light and extra flavorful. I even utilized Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice so that you can whip up this dish in no time. Enjoy!
1 Uncle Ben’s Long Grain & Wild Ready Rice -- microwave for 90 secs (directions on package)
¼ cup orange bell pepper, diced
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp olive oil
Splash red wine vinegar
2 stalks celery, diced
Cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
Handful mint and parsley, chopped
¼ cup yellow onion, diced
Prepare the rice according to the package. Chop veggies and herbs and combine all ingredients. Serve cold or at room temp. Happy Memorial Day!
