I love this recipe. It's really lite and great for summer. I have been serving it with home made hamburgers instead of home-fries.

1 cup wild rice (uncooked)
1/2 cup minced onion
1/2 cup + 2 T. olive oil
3 cups chicken broth
2 lemons
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
3/4 cup finely chopped tomatoes, skinned
3/4 cup finely chopped cucumber, peeled
3/4 cup finely chopped greed pepper, seeded
1 clove garlic, minced
2T. freshly chopped mint (optional, but I can't imagine this dish with out it.)

Saute minced onion in 2 T. oil until translucent. Add rice and broth. Simmer comvered for about 30 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Cool. Add remaining oil and juice of two lemons to moisten. Season to taste with salt and pepper and add chopped vegetables, garlic, and mint. Marinate at least two hours or overnight. (Flavor improves the longer it marinates.) Keep sup to 3-4 days in the fridge.

Enjoy!
