Cooking times for wild rice vary depending on the way the rice was processed. In general, cook one cup rice in three cups water, though you may need to add a little more water before the rice is done.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 9 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Gradually add oil to the vinegar mixture, stirring constantly.

Step 2

Bring 3 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add rice to pan. Cook, covered, 45 minutes or until tender. Drain. Place rice in a large bowl. Add 1/4 cup vinegar mixture; toss well. Cool.

Step 3

Cook green beans and lima beans in boiling water 4 minutes or until tender. Drain. Rinse with cold water; drain. Add beans, remaining vinegar mixture, bell pepper, celery, onion, and tomato to rice mixture; toss well. Line each of 6 plates with 1 lettuce leaf; top each serving with about 1 1/2 cups salad mixture. Sprinkle each serving with 1 1/2 teaspoons almonds.
