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.
