Wild Rice Salad with Bacon And Arugula

Wild Rice Salad with Bacon And Arugula

This flavorful Wild Rice Salad with Bacon and Arugula is a fun twist on wild rice salad that’s perfect to make for a special meal! And this salad has a variety of low-carb ingredients, so there are only about 8 net carbs per serving. Use baby spinach if you’re not an arugula fan.

The salad has lots of savory flavor from bacon, arugula, slivered almonds, shaved Parmesan, green onions, and celery, but the dressing is sweetened with Monkfruit Sweetener, so the salad has a nice mix of savory and sweet flavors.

If you’re making this for a holiday meal you can cook the wild rice and marinate it in the dressing, prep the other salad ingredients earlier in the day, and then toss the salad together when it’s time for dinner. 

  • 1 cup wild rice
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 10 strips bacon
  • 5 oz. baby arugula
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup shaved Parmesan
  • 3 T red wine vinegar
  • 3 T Monkfruit Sweetener
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. dry mustard
  • 5 T olive oil
  • salt and fresh ground pepper to taste (to season finished salad)
