Wild Rice Salad Recipe With Crunchy Vegetables & Ramen Noodles: A Sweet & Savory Grain Salad Recipe

This wild rice salad recipe is inspired by a visit to J. Alexander’s restaurant in Memphis, Tennessee. It has all the flavors and textures I like in a salad, and is one of those easy recipes you can adapt as you go based on what you have on hand.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 to 45 minutes
Total Time: 40 to 55 minutes
Servings: 6




Here’s how to make it:

  1. Cook wild rice according to directions, adding one Ramen seasoning package to cooking water. Refrigerate when done.
  2. Mix broccoli slaw, cooled rice, carrots, celery, bell pepper, crushed ramen noodles, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries and nuts, if using. 
  3. To make the dressing, combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Whisk together. Pour over the salad and toss. 

Note: If you have time to refrigerate the salad, hold off on adding the crushed noodles until just before serving and toss well so they are crisp and crunchy. Noodles will soften as they refrigerate, but it is still tasty that way!
