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.

  • 1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries
  • 2 cups shelled edamame, cooked
  • 4 cups broccoli, cut into bite-sized florets and lightly steamed

For the Maple Tahini Dressing


  1. Add all salad ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix well.
  2. Whisk the tahini dressing ingredients together in a small dish then add to the salad and mix well.
  3. Serve right away or store in the fridge in a container for up to 4 days.


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.
