Make this wild rice salad at home

Rustle up this simple salad for lunch with friends in the garden. It combines nutty wild rice, peppery radishes, roasted red peppers and green beans - crisp, clean and bright ingredients that create a delicious mix of textures. We liked it best served in our new Perl bowls, along with hunks of crusty bread and olive oil.

1 cup wild rice

60g peashoots

6 radishes, cut into wedges
