Wild Rice, Cranberry and Pecan Salad

Posted Jun 11 2010 12:07pm

This is the perfect dish to take to a brunch/barbeque or eat as a snack or for lunch or dinner.  It is very versatile and you can throw almost any chopped veggies into the salad.  Enjoy!

Wild Rice Cranberry Pecan Salad

1 cup wild rice blend (I like the Lundberg brand)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dried cranberries or dried cherries
1/2 cup chopped pecans (you can use almonds)
1/4 cup sliced green onions
juice from one orange
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Prepare rice according to package.  When done, uncover, stir with a fork, and let cool to almost room temperature.

Use a microplane grater and zest the orange.  Then squeeze the juice from the orange into a small bowl (remove any seeds).

Add all ingredients to a large bowl.  Stir well. Serve warm, chilled or at room temperature.
