Cooking with Children : Wild Rice Salad Recipe

Last week Lara and I cooked Crispy Chicken Goujons which we served with a summer wild rice salad. As promised, here is the cold wild rice salad recipe that Lara and I made. This is a cold salad which is great for serving with a barbecue or as a light lunch.

Wild Rice Salad (serves two adults and one or two hungry toddlers)

1 mug brown rice and wild rice mix (we get ours pre-mixed from Waitrose)
1 red pepper
1/5 onion
1 small tin sweetcorn (drained)
1/4 cucumber
1 heaped tablespoon frozen peas
About 10-15 french beans or dwarf beans
Small handful of chives snipped into 2cm lengths.
Olive Oil
Salt and pepper
