Mixed Bean & Wild Rice Salad

When you think of salad, do you normally think of lettuce, cucumber, and those sorts of ingredients? I know I do! The thing is, if that’s what you always make your salads with, you’ll soon get bored.

I like salad. In fact, I love it, but I hate boring salads which is why I’m always on the lookout for new and interesting recipes to try.

This recipe is one of my new favorites, and I know you’ll love it as much as I do. It contains no lettuce, but plenty of other equally healthy, much tastier ingredients. It’s also vegetarian-friendly, lactose-free, and provides a good source of protein.

Don’t get bored of the same old green salad vegetables; give this recipe a try instead!
