Wild Rice Salad with Oranges and Roasted Beets

What a lovely, bright-tasting salad!  The nuttiness from the wild rice balances out the tartness of the citrus.  And beets.  Beets!  Beets are so awesome.  I only knew beets to be cold, jiggly, pickled things that sat on my grandmother’s dinner table at family meals and I loathed those evil cubes.  I’m so glad I’ve revisited them in adulthood as I’ve grown to really love them.

This is from the Isa Chandra Moskowitz cookbook Appetite for Reduction, but it’s also posted online on the PPK blog over here.

Make it!  Pictured with it is the Skillet Cornbread from Veganomicon, which is suuuuper easy and so good.  It’s a great accompaniment for most things.  I mean, what’s not made better by a slice of cornbread on the side?
