Wild rice seemed to have its moment back in the ’90s. That’s roughly when Americans first seemed to discover there was more to the rice world than long-grain white.

Since then, wild rice (and yes, we know it’s really a grass, not a true rice) seems to have lost its luster. People moved on to all the other new and exciting grains that have come along since, things like quinoa and farro, not to mention the many designer and heirloom rices now lining grocers’ shelves.

But we still have a soft spot for the tender, nutty chew of wild rice. So we created a cool, sweet summer salad to show off just how delicious it can be.
