Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits and I picked up some really fresh, juicy strawberries for this one. I’m a big fan of jasmine and basmati rice. We also eat a lot of brown rice, but not wild rice. In fact, in my small town grocer, the only wild rice I found was actually long grain rice mixed with some wild rice. This salad was good and healthy, but I think it would’ve been better if I’d let the rice cool longer, perhaps even make the rice a day ahead.
- 4 cups baby spinach
- 2 cups cooked wild rice, cooled (follow package directions)
- 1 cup hulled and quartered strawberries
- 3 tablespoons tahini
- 1/3 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
- 1/4 cup rice vinegar
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Combine the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Thin the dressing with a little extra orange juice or water, if necessary. In a large bowl, toss the spinach and wild rice. Add strawberries and drizzle the dressing on top.
