Rice Salads for Bentos

I love using Rice salads for bentos. I like that I can make one batch of of it and get a few days out of them. Here are some of my favorites: Wild Rice Salad with Apples and Walnuts 1 c wild rice 2 c water 1 tbsp vegetable oil 1/4 tsp salt 1 c coarsely chopped walnuts 1 celery rib 4 scallions, thinly sliced 1 c raisins 1 medium red apple (not Delicious), cored and diced grated rind of 1 lemon ------ 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice (Sometimes I use the bottled juice if I have lemons, and leave out the zest) 2 garlic cloves, pressed 1/2 tsp salt
