I love rice salads and this is one of my favorites.
2 1/2 cups cooked wild rice
1 cup frozen green peas, thawed
1/2 cup crumbled feta or goat cheese
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup chopped pungent herbs, such as dill, mint, chives, or basil
3 green onions, sliced (green and white parts…no waste!)
Combine and gently toss rice, peas, cheese, herbs, and green onions in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar. Season with salt and fresh cracked pepper and toss. Let sit for at least 20 minutes to let flavors meld.
*Feel free to include any of these as a variation: 1/3 cup chopped toasted almonds, 1/3 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes, or 1/3 cup chopped roasted red pepper
