Whether it’s a meal you bring on the road or something warm out of Ma’s kitchen, there’s nothing like home cooking. And, while I love traveling, it’s been nice to settle down this week, and bring y’all one of my new favorite sides dishes! (It’s also conveniently great road trip food too.)
Now, I love my Nutted Wild Rice Salad. It’s one of the two main lunches I made all winter, so trying out this Barefoot Contessa Recipe was a bit of fresh air.
Most people will consider this to be a lighter dish with its citrus flavors; however, I found the base of the dish to be a bit heavier than the Nutted Wild Rice Salad. Nonetheless, the flavors are refreshing, and it’s definitely a more seasonal dish as we enter this beautiful spring/summertime weather.
For my fellow celiac and food allergy friends. This meal is gluten free (as always), and only contains pecans (out of the top allergens). Fortunately, unlike the nutted wild rice salad, the pecans can be omitted without losing most of the taste. Therefore, this is a dish for most of us to enjoy!
Without further ado, here’s the recipe. 🙂

Right now, I’m gearing up for grad school. This dish will also be perfect for all the lunch boxes I’ll be packing come June. Lastly, I’m excited to share this side dish with my Fiesta Friday friends! I can’t wait to see what y’all brought to the Fiesta too.
