This healthy, protein-packed wild rice and broccoli salad is a great dish to make ahead of time. It works beautifully as a side dish or can stand alone as a nutritious and satisfying entree.

Notes

The nutritional information listed below is if you make 4 servings out of this. For 6 servings, each serving would provide 298 calories, 8.4 grams of fat, 14.6 grams of protein and 42 grams of carbohydrates.

To make this recipe stretch further, you can add an additional 1 cup of cooked wild rice. I’ve made it with 2 cups and 3 cups and both are good! If you’re adding 3 cups of rice, you’ll definitely get 6 servings out of this.

Maple syrup can be reduce or omitted if you prefer a sugar-free dressing. If omitting, add a bit of extra lemon juice.
