Fruity Black Rice Salad With Cilantro, Avocado, and Pepitas in Chili-Orange Vinaigrette

This is one of the many recipes I have bookmarked to try later. Well, tonight I got to it and it was fabulous! I had to share.

From Serious Eats: Fruity Black Rice Salad With Cilantro, Avocado, and Pepitas in Chili-Orange Vinaigrette | Serious Eats : Recipes



I served it with a spicy shrimp, which I cook in a habenero-ginger-garlic-orange oil. But it would be the perfect foil for any dish with a gingery kick. I didn't add the orange pieces, only because after squeezing and zesting my only orange, there wasn't anything left to add. But I didn't really miss it. There was plenty of orange in the dressing.

As a vegetarian option, you could make this the center of a meal.

We really like "Forbidden Rice" (black rice) in the preparations we have tried. Did you use blood oranges in that preparation?

Actually, the only similar fruit I had on hand was a mineola, so that's what I used. I'd bet that it would be good with a blood orange - or any orange or tangerines.

I have some black rice that needs using up. This looks like a great idea.

I find I'm wasting spending more and more time reading articles on "Serious Eats". Now I'm going to need to start perusing their recipes!
