Wild Rice, Spinach and Avocado Salad with Sesame Dressing

Prep Time 10 min Cook Time 1 hr



    • 4-5 big bunches of baby spinach chopped (you can do kale as well)
    • 1 1/2 cups wild rice (cooked)
    • 3 avocados sliced
    • 2 cups or 1 can white beans (soak overnight and then cook until soft)
    • 2-3 cloves garlic minced or 2 tsp garlic powder
    • salt to taste


    • 6 T toasted sesame oil
    • 3 T rice vinegar
    • 3 T soy sauce or bragg's aminos
    • Juice of 1 lemon


    1. Cook the rice and let cool. I actually did this the day before. Same with the beans if using dried beans.
    2. In a large bowl, add rice, beans, avocado, garlic and spinach and mix well.
    3. In a small bowl, whisk the ingredients for the dressing.
    4. Pour dressing in the large bowl and mix well until everything is combined.


    Recipe Notes

    I found the best way to do this was with my hands. This dish is best eaten fresh, but will still be delicious the next day. I makes about 5-6 servings. Enjoy!
