       Title: Wild Rice-Cucumber Salad
  Categories: Low, Fat
       Yield: 1 servings
  
   1 1/2 c  Wild rice, rinsed
       3 c  Water
       3    Cucumbers, sliced thick and
         sl Cut into quarters
       1    Red bell pepper, diced
       1 bn Green onions (or 1 Vidalia
            Or red onion), chopped
  
   (the cucumbers can be increased with good results, and other veg.added)
   Bring the water to a boil, add the wild rice.  Return to boil, turn down to
   simmer for 40 minutes or until some of the grains burst.  Remove from heat
   and allow to cool. Drain any excess water. Toss cooled rice and other
   ingredients in a bowl.
   
   You may use any dressing you like, but I like to use one of these:
   
   Basil/Balsamic Vinegar Dressing [T] - I think I derived this from something
   McDougall
   
   1/3 c balsamic vinegar 1 T soy sauce 2 T water 2 T fresh basil, chopped
   fine 2 cloves garlic, chopped fine 1 T onion, chopped fine 1/2 t black
   pepper
   
   Combine in a jar, shake, and allow to sit, preferably overnight.  The salad
   will also be improved if it is dressed and allowed to sit for several
   hours, which is good, since there is a lot of it!
   
   The other dressing I use on this is from the New McDougall Cookbook, called
   the Savory Salad Dressing. [T]
   
   1 t Dijon mustard 1/4 c red wine vinegar 1/4 c water 1/4 c soy sauce dash
   Tobasco sauce
   
   Combine in jar, shake, allow to sit for a few hours.
   
   (makes a LARGE amount, keeps well)
