Wild Rice Salad w/ Pepitas & Goji Berries

The heat rages on and that means I'm less inclined to stand in front of the stove or grill, forget about the oven. This is when I'm incredibly thankful to have an electric clay cooker and Instant Pot! When it's this hot, meals are usually veggie based with some sort of grain. These are the days when I make a quick rice salad for dinner, it's satisfying without being stuffy.

This is a great refreshingly cool, and light summer rice dish. The nutty wild rice and pumpkin seeds, tart goji berries, sweet carrots, and juicy cucumbers, play off the lemony ginger dressing for a light but satisfying cool summer rice dish.

Here's my recipe for Wild Rice Salad w/ Pepitas & Goji Berries:
