  • 1  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  cup  wild rice, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2  cup  long grain brown rice
  • 1/4  cup  snipped fresh cilantro
  • 1  teaspoon  finely shredded lime peel
  • 2  tablespoons  lime juice
  • 2  tablespoons  honey
  • 4  teaspoons  canola oil or olive oil

Directions

1. In a large saucepan bring the water and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt to boiling; stir in wild rice and brown rice. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 45 minutes or until rice is tender. Remove from heat. Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Place saucepan in a large bowl half-filled with ice water. Let stand about 10 minutes or until cool, stirring occasionally.

2. Meanwhile, for dressing, in a large bowl whisk together cilantro, lime peel, lime juice, honey, oil, crushed red pepper, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Remove 2 tablespoons of the dressing and set aside until ready to serve. Add red onion to the remaining dressing in bowl; toss to coat. Add cooled rice and chicken; toss to coat. Gently stir in orange sections.

3. To serve, divide spinach among serving plates. Spoon rice mixture onto spinach. Top with avocado and drizzle with the reserved dressing.
