Wild Rice Salad

Here's another one from last week's Clean Eating Extravaganza! (adapted a bit, of course)  The wild rice I used this time was a bit on the sticky side; still very tasty, but just different that what I'm used to.

Wild Rice Salad
1 c. wild rice, cooked (takes about an hour, so give yourself time)
1/2 c. cucumber, diced
1/2 bell pepper, diced
1 c. soybeans
2 green onions, chopped finely

Mix together, then drizzle with dressing:
1/4 c. rice vinegar
1 Tbsp. toasted sesame oil
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp. tarragon
salt and pepper to taste

Mix together all ingredients, then sprinkle with 7-8 finely chopped basil leaves.  

The original recipe also contained tomatoes and corn, but I was a bit tired of corn (and J. was tired of tomatoes), so I left them out.  This was very good as a side salad to some grilled salmon!
