I love the pop and texture of wild rice. It’s also full of flavor. Pinch of Yum’s recipe is one of my favs!

I love your post…and I’m definitely going to try that butternut squash and wild rice salad. My kind of recipe! One of my favorite recipes (on MMM’s blog) is for a Wild Rice Summer Salad made with kale, pecans, bell peppers, and more. Everything but the kitchen sink 🙂
