Tempeh and Wild Rice Salad

Originally uploaded by plainsight.

I came up with this salad when I was working for a healthfood store in North Carolina. The store's owner had a recipe for chicken salad that she had gotten off of a container of dried apricots, and she asked me to "veganize" it. It's been a family hit ever since--it has tempeh, mayo, wild rice, dried apricots, parsley and some yummy seasoning.

I made it this year on the Fourth of July, not realizing that I had also made it last Forth of July... not sure why it came to me as an "Independence Day" dish, but perhaps it will be a tradition.

The food looks great as well. I'm a big fan of both wild rice and tempeh. Great meal!

It's the flower plate from IKEA--It's several years old, but I think they still sell them...
