  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • Toast nuts in a non-stick frying pan over medium. Stir often until golden, about 5 min. Set aside to cool.
  • Whisk vinegar with Dijon, maple syrup, salt and oil in a small bowl. Add onion and let stand for at least 10 min.
  • Stir onion and vinaigrette into warm rice. Stir in blueberries and nuts. Serve warm or chill in refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving.
