  1. Oh goodie....a new picnic recipe to try on the family!

    Looks yummy!

  2. I love the texture of wild rice! This sounds like such a delicious salad!

  3. I live in the land of wild rice and we always have some. The lemon and lime in the dressing makes it perfect for summer... you ave me dreaming of summer.

  4. My first thought when looking at the photo was, "man there's a lot of ingredients in there"

    But as it turns out not really. Delicious.

    bless you.

  5. This is something new to me and honestly I am so curious.I hope to find wild rice in our place.By the way I gave you an award..I hope you could find time and get it,thanks and have a great weekend

  6. Stumbled! Rice, risotto, and beans are Italian food I can eat. Unfortunately for me, pasta, pizza, bread are all off limits. Mind if I steal this recipe?

  7. Hello Catherine, nice to meet you! Thank you for being
    gone from me, I'm really happy to meet new people.
    Your salad of rice and beans is very tasty!
    I tried not to translate the page into Italian and to seek
    to understand it in English .... but I have trouble with the weight of the ingredients :-)))
    Soon, I joined with your supporters

  10. Dark rice white beans two favorites with wonderful herbs, Catherine this surely is a hit!

  11. I love wild rice, it's macrobiotic (I think) while I can get some muesli like rice here, I can't find wild rice like this from home... this is so nostalgic for me and quite yummy to.

  12. Your rice looks very delicious Catherine! I have a whole bunch in my pantry I need to use up. I love your dressing with the dash of cinnamon! xoxo
