Greekish Wild Rice Bowl

“Last year in Greece, I fell in love with all of these flavors, and as soon as I got home, I made a ‘kitchen sink’ salad. The wild rice base might not be traditionally Greek, but it adds a nutritional element; wild rice comes from a different species of aquatic grass than white or brown rice, and it’s significantly lower in carbohydrates. I love the heft it gives the bowl, and the wild rice’s nutty flavor combined with the briny olives and artichokes totally works.” —Seamus Mullen
