I modified the original recipe. This is a very pretty and tangy tasting salad. The wild rice and pine nuts add a nice crunch to an otherwise slightly boring salad. Be generous with the feta and serve with tomato slices. This would make a nice potluck dish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring the water to a boil and add the rice. Cook until tender.
  2. Heat a frying pan and add the pine nuts to toast. Transfer to a large bowl.
  3. Add the rice, peppers, scallions, garlic, basil and thyme.
  4. In a cup, whisk together the vinegar, lemon juice, oil and mustard.
  5. Toss with the rice mixture.
  6. Top with feta cheese and serve warm.

Sure it's very healthy but with absolutely no flavor. I followed the recipe exactly although I wish I hadn't. It was very bland.

Very easy, very good & very healthy - fibericious. ;) THE PICKY ONE wouldn't eat it after finding a pignoli, but oh well.
