Description

An acorn squash wild rice salad with roasted vegetables and a citrus dressing. A tasty but light combination of fall and summer flavors.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Wild Rice Or Wild Rice Mix
  • ½ whole Acorn Squash
  • ½ whole Red Onion
  • 1 teaspoon Thyme
  • ½ cups Bell Pepper, Thinly Sliced (red/yellow/orange)
  • 1 cup Summer Squash (or Zucchini), Thinly Sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil Plus Extra For Drizzling Over Vegetables Prior To Roasting
  • 1 clove Garlic, Pressed
  • 1 teaspoon Honey
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • Goat Cheese, Optional For Serving

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425 F. Cook rice according to your package instructions.

Dice squash and onion and put them in a roasting dish with the thyme. Drizzle some olive oil over the top and toss to coat the vegetables. Roast for around 30-40 minutes total, but after 15 minutes, stir and add sliced pepper and zucchini.

Make the dressing by whisking the lemon juice, olive oil, crushed garlic and honey together with a little salt and pepper.

When vegetables are done remove them from the oven and stir again. Put them into a large bowl and mix with the rice. Add dressing and serve with crumbled goat cheese over the top.

Works well as a main dish or as a side to grilled meat or sausages. Also good cold for lunch.
