Wild Rice and Cashew Salad
- 2 cups wild black rice (uncooked)
- 5 cups water
- 2 cups roasted cashew nuts (I use salted)
- 1 large tin (19 oz/540 ml) chickpeas, drained
- 2 cups raisins plumped with ½ cup boiling water
- ½ cup chopped green onions
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 2 tbsp liquid honey
- 2 tbsp cider vinegar
- 1 ½ tbsp curry powder
- 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Put two cups rice and five cups water in pot, cover and bring to boil. Lift rice off bottom of pot with fork, turn down to simmer. Cook for 45 to 60 minutes, stirring occasionally. In meantime, plump raisins in covered bowl. Let rice and raisins cool. Drain raisins. Mix all ingredients, including dressing.
NOTE: If you make ahead of time, add cashews just before serving. You can also salt and roast your own cashews if you only have raw.
