It's nice to have a few salad recipes that can serve as main dishes, and the rice in this one makes it especially filling. A big forkful of tender leaves with little piles of rice, sweet dates, and crunchy nuts made the perfect combination of flavors and textures.
This was a tough recipe to name. I thought about calling it my "wild rice, chickpea, date, cashew, celery, and mixed green salad," but decided that something simpler might be best! Needless to say, there's a lot going on in this salad — and it's all good.
