"Easy to make and tastes wonderful. You can use either turkey or chicken. You can serve it plain, on salad greens, or in a pita. Very versatile. If in season, try substituting black cherries for the grapes." — GINNYKAE

I make this salad all the time! I love it! Make sure you use light or fat free mayo, regular gives it less flavor and a more greasy feel to it. I add a tad more sugar and use cider vinegar. Another great variation is to add mandarin oranges and cranberries.
I'm only giving this a 3 star rating, but it might be my own fault it wasn't that great. I couldn't find a 6 oz pkg of wild rice anywhere-- I mean just the wild rice-- so I used a 6 oz box of Uncle Ben's white and wild and didn't use the seasoning packet. It was pretty good the first day, but as the week went on (I make things to take to lunch at work the whole week) it got kind of soggy. I really wish I could have found the wild rice in the store I shop at, but maybe will have to try again and amend my rating.... It is pretty tasty the first day though.
WONDERFUL! Great on croissants. My husband didn't think he would like the grapes (kind of a meat and potatotes guy) but he really liked it; moreso with the grapes than without. I didn't add the almonds this time only because I didn't have any. This was heavy on the rice so if you prefer more chicken you may want to consider modifying the recipe accordingly.
I rated this recipe a five but i changed it all around so maybe it's not. Anyway i guessetamated the mayo/sugar/vinegar/salt and pepper, using far less than instructed. I used cashews instead of almonds, very few grapes and used a can of chicken instead of turkey. Regardless i consider this an A+ recipe
Great salad recipe. I am extremely picking about the ingredients/flavors in salads, but this is so yummy. The flavors are pretty mild and the ingredients go very well together. And, it's healthy! I substituted chicken instead of turkey, but I'm sure it tastes similar. I also used 3/4c. of organic wild rice blend instead of a packaged mix. The slivered almonds add great texture. This is a nice salad to bring to a picnic or potluck too. I will be using this many times in the future.
This is a very good salad that gets recipe requests everytime I take it to a function.
Very good salad...I toasted the almonds before adding it to the salad and it gave it a great flavour!
I too couldn't find just one 6oz pkg of wild rice so I measured 1cup's worth and cooked it per the directions on the bag. Also, I added a splash of lemon juice to the mayo mix and used cashews instead of almonds. A very "summer salad" = great for the hot days we've been having around here!! Thanks Gina!
