Making Bocconcini is a lot like pulling taffy.


Ingredients

1/2 cup (125 mL) wild rice
1 beet (any colour)
2 small carrots (any colour)
1 Boston lettuce
1/2 head of radicchio
6 oz (180 g) Canadian Feta, coarsely crumbled
Pomegranate arils, to taste
1/3 cup (75 mL) orange juice
3 tbsp (45 mL) olive oil
Freshly ground pepper

Preparation

Place rice and 1 cup (250 mL) water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cover and cook for 15–20 minutes or until rice has absorbed all the water.

Transfer to a bowl and let cool.

Meanwhile, peel and thinly slice beet. Peel carrots and then make ribbons using a peeler.

Arrange Boston lettuce and radicchio leaves on a large serving plate. Top with rice, beets, carrots, Feta and pomegranate arils.

In a small bowl, mix orange juice with olive oil and pour over salad. Season with pepper and serve.

Note: To curl the carrot ribbons, place in ice water for about 30 minutes before serving.

Tips

Cheese alternative: Canadian Bocconcini (add salt to taste).
