Vegan Gluten-free Wild Rice Salad

Wild rice salad close

My family and friends always request I bring this salad to BBQs – it’s a winner as almost everyone can (and will) eat it. It’s as delicious as it is colourful!


1 cup steamed red rice

1 cup steamed black rice

2 cups steamed brown rice

1 large red onion, diced

2 large red capsicums, diced

2 cups steamed green beans or raw snow peas

1 cup steamed corn kernels

300-400g dry roasted cashews

2/3 cup toasted sunflower seeds


1/4 cup lemon juice

2/3 cup low sodium tamari (or soy sauce if not gluten-free)

4 large garlic cloves, crushed

1/2 cup olive oil

1/4 cup sesame oil

salt and pepper to taste


Combine all ingredients (except the dressing ingredients) in a large bowl. Add all dressing ingredients to a jar and shake vigorously to combine. Pour dressing over the salad and stir through. Allow to marinade an hour in the fridge before serving. Enjoy with some vegan sausages (such as Tofurkey Beer Brats) cooked on the BBQ!
