Wild Rice, Corn and Peach Salad

I love hearty grain salads in the summer as a side or a light main dish.  This one features wild rice, a Minnesota staple, sweet peaches which are at their most flavorful right now and sweet corn.  The combination is delicious paired with a light balsamic dressing!

  1. In a large pot, place the wild rice and enough water to cover by a couple inches.  Bring to a boil, then cover and lower to a simmer.  Cook until the wild rice is beginning to bloom and is tender, about 40-45 minutes.  Remove from heat, drain well and let cool completely.
  2. Add the rice to a bowl, along with the green onions, peach, sweet corn and basil.
  3. In a smaller bowl whisk together the balsamic, avocado oil, maple syrup, salt and garlic powder, and pour over the ingredients in the bowl.  Mix well, and serve!
