Wild Rice Salad

A few weeks ago it was a warm day... so I wanted a cold and filling salad. I had some wild rice and the Trader Joe's brown rice medley in my cupboard. Threw together some veggies, cooked up rice and used a premade balsamic vinaigrette to make a fresh salad for a Saturday afternoon in the sun. 

Wild Rice Salad:
Wild Rice
Brown Rice Medley (Trader Joe's)
Fresh Spinach
White Onion
Golden Raisins
Only problem with wild rice is that it takes so long to cook!
