Ingredients

For the Wild Rice Pea Salmon Salad

For the dressing

  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • ⅓ cup lemon juice
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic, grated or minced finely
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • 5-6 basil leaves, ribboned

Directions

  1. In a pot, add in wild rice, chicken stock, and a pinch of salt. Bring the pot to a boil on the stovetop before bringing it down to a simmer. Allow the rice to cook for 35-40 minutes.
  2. While the rice is cooking, in a container, mix together all your ingredients for your dressing and set it aside in the fridge.
  3. Once the wild rice has cooked to your liking, drain any excess liquid and mix in the peas and Wild Sockeye Salmon, breaking it up into small pieces with a fork.
  4. Serve as is or chilled. If serving immediately, drizzle the dressing into the salad and mix well. 
  5. If meal prepping, set aside the salad dressing in a separate container and dress the salad the day of eating.
