  • Salad
  • 8 ounces wild rice
  • 16 ounces orzo
  • 8 ounces snow peas, cleaned and diced
  • 2 large yellow or red bell peppers, diced
  • 3/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 8 radishes, cut in matchsticks

  1. Cook both wild rice and orzo according to package directions.

  2. In a very large bowl stir together the prepared wild rice, orzo, snow peas, bell peppers, onion and radishes.

  3. To prepare the dressing: In a glass jar with a lid or in the container of a blender, combine the cider vinegar, olive oil, parsley, gingerroot, mustard, salt and pepper. Shake or process until thoroughly blended.

  4. Up to two hours before serving, combine the rice mixture with the dressing. Mix until the dressing evenly coats the salad.
