Protein Packed Wild Rice Salad

img_5324

This is a yummy option for my Gluten Free and Dairy free friends.  Since the massive time at home during the safe  this is a great option to enjoy hot or cold.  It seasons and save wonderfully in the fridge for a quick snack.  I also have incorporated the TVP(Textured Vegetable Protein) to add that extra punch.  Its a yummy bowl at it best.  Can be eaten as a meal or a fabulous side dish to any BBQ. Remove Chicken and its Vegan! Enjoy.

  • 2 cups wild rice cooked
  • Chicken Breast (grilled and chopped)
  • 1 Cup TVP rehydrated
  • 1/2 cup each chopped veggies
    • sweet onion
    • red pepper
    • cucumber
    • peeled celery
    • cherry tomatoes quartered
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup FF olive oil Italian dressing(alternative olive oil and balsamic vinegar to taste)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tsp sweet basil chopped

The versatile salad you can add or remove pretty much anything you like. Feta Cheese is good in this for the cheese lovers. I have fresh blueberries but strawberries or chopped green apple is yummy as well. Mix all together in a big bowl and allow to season for at least 30 minutes before serving. The TVP add a nice Harty chew to this salad.
