Wild Rice, Asparagus & Pecan Salad

  • 1 cup chopped Pecan Halves
  • 1-1/2 cups Reserved Cooking Liquid
  • 1 Tb Unsalted Butter
  • 1 cup Long Grain Brown Rice (brown)
  • 1/2 cup Wild Rice
  • 3-1/2 cups Vegetable or Chicken Broth
  • 1 cup Tiny Frozen Peas
  • 4 Green Onions, finely sliced
  • 3 Tb Freshly Chopped Cilantro
  • 2 Tb Freshly Chopped Mint
  • 1 lb Fresh Asparagus, blanched & cut diagonally into 3/4" pieces


  • 1 pinch ground black Pepper
  • 3 Tb Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp Grated Lemon Zest
  • 2 Tb Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 cup Nonfat Plain Yogurt
  • 1 - tsp Sea Salt


Heat butter in large saucepan over medium high heat. When hot, add brown and wild rices and cook, stirring to coat well for one minute. Add broth and 1-1/2 cups reserved asparagus cooking liquid. Bring mixture to a simmer, reduce heat to low and cover. Cook for 34 - 45 minutes, or until rice is tender, but still has a little bite when tasted. Drain and discard any liquid from rice. Blot rice dry with paper towels. (Rice can be cooked one day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)

Place rice, prepared asparagus, peas, green onions, cilantro, mint and pecans in a mixing bowl and toss well to mix.

Whisk salt, yogurt, lemon juice, lemon zest and oil in a small bowl, add to rice mixture. Toss well. Taste and add more lemon juice and salt, if needed and season with pepper.

Salad can be made 3 – 4 hours ahead, covered and refrigerated if desired.
