Wild Rice, Green Lentil, Almond Salad with Lemon Tarragon Dressing

ImageI love Canadian Living.  This one came to me via their app which I now subscribe to. I adjusted this because the original recipe is Indian inspired so it’s flavoured with raisins, cumin and coriander and while I love those flavours I eat a ton of Indian food and I wanted something a little lighter and more summery. So I substituted those flavours with an olive oil, lemon, garlic, honey, tarragon dressing which was fantastic.

So this is super simple. Cook and dice and mix it all up.

The ingredients are:

1 cup wild rice uncooked

1 cup uncooked green lentils

1 cup parsley

1 cup sliced almonds

1 cup red onion finely sliced.

Cook the wild rice until done (the same way you cook regular rice except it takes a wee bit longer). Boil lentil until done. Chop everything else up, throw them together in a serving dish and voila you have an awesome hearty summer salad.

I didn’t pour my salad dressing I made into the entire salad but instead dressed my salad with each serving. It keeps the veggies fresher.
