Spring Rice & Artichoke Salad

 

Lemon-dijon dressing laces through brown rice, artichokes, peas, sunflower seeds and any other spring inspiration in your kitchen. Basil and mint compliment this salad nicely, but sage, parsley and thyme would also be lovely additions. If you have an abundance of fresh artichokes & peas, use them here. If not, frozen and defrosted are still delightful in this salad.

Preparation Instructions

Bring the brown rice, water and half of the salt up to a boil. Simmer for 35-45 minutes until tender. Strain excess water through a wire mesh strainer and rinse with cold water.

Meanwhile, whisk together the dijon, lemon zest, lemon juice and black pepper. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until thick & creamy. Taste. Add salt & more pepper to taste if needed.

Toss the dressing & brown rice together with the artichoke hearts, peas, sunflower seeds, fresh herbs and green olives.

Taste. Adjust any of the ingredients as you desire.
