Cajun Rice Salad

I've said it before, we grew up eating leftovers so making new tasty meals from what we already have has become something of a talent. I love wild rice and often make extra for the week for lunch & sides like wild rice salads. This tasty, crunchy veggie filled salad gives you cajun flavors of the Big Easy while being very easy to put together. Here's my recipe for Cajun Rice Salad:
