Roasted Corn, Turkey and Wild Rice Salad

Author: Canadian Living

This colourful, refreshing salad works well as part of a buffet brunch or luncheon menu. As an alternative to wild rice, use cooked brown or red rice. Frozen raspberry concentrate is convenient to have on hand: use any remaining in smoothies, fruit salads or for deglazing pans when saut?g chicken or turkey strips. Serve salad on a bed of arugula or shredded lettuce.
