A delicious and nutritious salad perfect for a summer pot-luck picnic, and so easy to throw together! I keep cooked wild rice in my freezer, which lessens the prep time and makes this recipe even easier. Make it simpler yet by using frozen pre-sliced peppers (I like using a variety of red, green and yellow). The dressing is also great on it's own.
