For the salad:

  • 1 cup Village Harvest Black Rice cooked according to package instructions and cooled
  • 1 cup shelled edamame thawed if frozen
  • 1 bell pepper seeded and chopped
  • 2 clementines or 1 small naval orange peeled, sliced widthwise, and cut into small triangles
  • 2 green onions both white and green parts, sliced on the bias
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • sesame seeds for garnish (optional)

For the dressing:

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce or tamari for gluten-free
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger*
  • 1 small clove garlic grated or chopped very fine
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil


  • Place the rice in a large serving bowl. Add the edamame, bell pepper, clementines, green onions, and cilantro to the bowl. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the rice wine vinegar, orange juice, soy sauce, honey or agave, ginger, garlic, and sesame oil. Whisking constantly, add the olive oil in a slow steady stream. Add a pinch of salt if desired,
  • Add the dressing to the salad and toss to combine until the salad is well coated with the dressing. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, if using, then serve and enjoy!


  • *I always have freshly grated ginger in a zip top bag in the freezer. Simply grate with a Microplane peel and all!
