WILD RICE SALAD

359 calories, 3.2 grams sugar, 24.2 grams fat, 31.5 grams carbohydrates, 7.1 grams

protein

You may not think salads are particularly satisfying, but this version, made with a

hearty blend of wild rice, will surely prove you wrong. This nutritious dish is full of

nutty, chewy textures from the rice, as well as dried cranberries, pecans, and cashews,

which makes it filling (and fun) to eat!

Ingredients:

For salad:

1 c. wild rice

1/2 c. dried cranberries

1/3 c. chopped toasted pecans

1/3 c. chopped toasted unsalted cashews

1/4 c. finely chopped green onions

2 tbsp. finely chopped celery

2 tbsp. finely chopped red onion

For dressing:

2 tbsp. raspberry vinegar or red wine vinegar

1 tbsp. lemon juice

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tsp. Dijon mustard

1 tsp. sugar

1/3 c. olive oil

1/2 tsp. ground pepper

Directions:

Combine 4 c. water and 1 tsp. salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the rice.

Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, about 45

minutes. Drain well and cool. Drain the rice (if there is water left in the pot) and

transfer the rice to a large bowl. While the rice is cooling, mix in the dried

cranberries, pecans, cashews, green onion, celery, and red onion. Mix the vinegar,

lemon juice, garlic, mustard, and sugar in a blender. While the blender is running,

gradually pour in the olive oil. Pour the dressing over the rice mixture and toss. The

salad can be made up to 3 days ahead of time and just chilled in fridge.

Makes 4-6 servings as a side dish.

THE DIVERSE SIDE OF FASHION

For years it seems that diversity in fashion rises and falls. This year it seems that diversity and celebration of differences of colour and race is back in the game. And is it not just a beautiful thing to see. 

The year of diversity kicked off with black supermodel Jourdan Dunn gracing the cover of british vogue, being the first solo black supermodel to grace the cover of vogue in 12 years.

Along with this, we saw diversity all over the runway this season. From shows like Marc Jacobs to Alexander Wang and all those around and in between. 

image.jpg

And how refreshing it was to see the beauty of difference and change before our eyes representing fashion and evolving in the industry. It not only opens our eyes but makes the clothes and significance of a strong woman even more powerful seeing strength through the eyes of all colour and races.
