Whew! What a day. I am getting ready for my live workshop this Saturday and I have been working since really early this morning. Looking so forward to the workshop as I LOVE doing them – but man…..lots of work.
Today in the video I am dressed very casual as I was making my lunch (late lunch) and decided to make it my “How-To Thursday” Video. Bit of multi-tasking on my part but I know you are going to like it!
This wild rice salad is very versatile and is great as it can sit in the fridge for days and as I show in the video, you can add various dressings and sauces and ingredients to it so you have something different each day.
First I make an asian ginger dressing for the salad and I add soaked wakame and dulse (seaweeds). This would also be good with sunflower seeds.
Then I add some artichokes and make a creamy dill dressing with cashews.
Each time you have the salad you can have a different dressing or sauce on it and add a new ingredient to the salad.
So check out the video
