2 1/2 cups
kiwis, peeled and diced
seedless red grapes, halved
1 1/2 tablespoons
toasted, chopped pecans
I use vegetable bullion for the stock as it adds more flavor. This is one of the most versatile wild rice recipes I have made. I used mandarin oranges, green grapes and dried cranberries for a summer picnic. For the salt, I used untoasted chopped cashews. Excellent recipe and one I will use a lot for the different seasons.
I made this salad exactly to the recipe. It was great until the dressing was added. I would make this salad again but the lemon was way to strong. Three people tasted the salad before the dressing and after. No one really like it after the dressing was added the lemon made it too sour. I would use orange juice instead of lemon or less lemon juice.
Wow. :) One of my favorite salad recipes of all times! Have made it on several occasions and everyone has always loved it. It looks beautiful with all the different colors and has a wonderfully refreshing flavor. Can also serve as salad and side dish in one, if you don't have time to prepare both.
It's something different for a side dish. I think it needed some more dressing, couldn't taste the lemon at all.
This has great potential, but was nothing to write home about as is. Little too much lemon in the dressing and it could actually use more rice. Use a strong and nutty wild rice - maybe a red jasmine - to make it more flavorful, and you will be better off as well.
wait for the rice to cool before putting in the fruit
Pretty good as I made it. Used 1/2 cup Jasmine rice and 1/4 cup wild rice. Omitted the Kiwi as the ones at the store we terrible and I didn't use ANY chicken stock as I was cooking chicken with it. Doubled the dressing. Was very good. I used some of the rest the next day in a wrap sandwich of turkey, lettuce, and cheese. That was even better!
Wondful any time
