Rosemary Goat Cheese Wild Rice

1 reviews / 5 average

I almost called this easy dinner a salad, but to avoid the image of either a leafy, light, and unfilling meal, or a creamy mayonnaise-based dish at a picnic…

I guess I’d rather not call it a salad.

That being said, this goat cheese wild rice is super healthy! (Remember - it’s not a salad.) Who knew a non-salad could be so good for you? And (since it’s not a salad) it’s really filling.

So filling, in fact, that I didn’t even need my nightly dessert after I ate this! That doesn’t mean I didn’t eat some chocolate anyways. But still.

To top off the list of reasons why this should not be called a salad, I am fed up with this cold May weather. Yes, it’s only been 4 days, but I are still bitter from the 30 cold days of April. I am longing to eat something fresh and bright and sunny, but the idea of a cold salad just about freezes me over. Which is why this yummy, healthy, fresh and bright non-salad is served warm. With hot tea. Sweatpants optional.

Also, for all you who like to take advantage of the fact that this is not a salad, please melt a tiny bit of butter into the rice with the goat cheese. Trust me on this one.

Ah, there comes the sun. Just in time for dessert.

    Came here for the poppy seed dressing but found a few more that look marvelous!
    Love the site and the recipes. Finally someone who is not afraid of butter!! I am a holistic nutrition practitioner and the only thing I would not use is the cake mix in your pumpkin bars. They look delicious and I was thinking of mixing in some yam or sweet potato.
    Anyways, I really appreciate your blog and style or writing; light humor, and very honest.
    Great to get more good recipes!
    All my best to you!!
