Wild Rice Salad with Strawberries & Citrusy Tahini Vinaigrette

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
Dressing
  • 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

Preparation:

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.
