Meatless Monday: Wild Rice and Kale Salad

May 19, 2014

Wild rice and kale salad from Cali Zona is a vegetarian dish that's packed with flavor and nutrition.  Wild rice is rich in amino acids, antioxidants and fiber and lower in calories compared to any other rice.  It has a chewy texture that holds up well in salads.  In this recipe, the wild rice is mixed with a spicy homemade cauliflower pesto and paired with thin strips of kale, carrot, fennel, cabbage and roasted bell pepper.  Before serving a tangy tangerine vinaigrette is tossed with the vegetables.  This hearty meatless meal can stand alone or be accompanied by other delicious vegetable dishe.
