0 Recipe | "Mixed Greens Salad with Blueberries, Orange Segments and Wild Rice" by Sue Ready

Cook’s notes: This refreshing salad combines greens and grains packed with lots of nutrients. Kale can be substituted for mixed greens. As a time saver, make wild rice ahead, refrigerate until needed and toast pecans. Plate each salad serving rather than placing all ingredients in a salad bowl. Recipe serves four. Pork loin steaks with dried cherry-plum sauce pairs well with this salad.
