"Worth the time it takes to make this!!! The nutty flavor and crunchy texture of the wild rice are so wonderful in this salad they always ask for more!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Great recipe. Everyone in my family loved it.
Maybe you need to have walnut oil--I just used canola. I though the recipe lacked pizazz and won't make it again.
This was very easy to make with pre-cooked chicken and is a nice change from standard chicken salad. I took it to a pot luck and was asked for the recipe by the hostess as well as several of the guests. The water chestnuts added a nice crunch; don't leave them out. I tried it once without them and it was a little mushy. Be careful of the salt if using roasted chicken from a deli or market.
ohhhhh! this is the best! my whole family loved it and it was perfect on a hot summer day!
I had cooked wild rice leftover that I wanted to use up, so I tried this recipe. I was afraid that my very picky husband wouldn't like it, but we both loved it! However, we did think it could use more chicken. It's delicious, though, and definitely going on my list of favourites!
I was so excited to try this since the ingredients look marvelous and I'm always looking for wheat & dairy-free recipes. I found it bland until I got up in the middle of dinner and added chopped orange segments to it. Next time I will try it with some orange juice mixed into the vinegar/oil. We also ate it over chopped romaine for a full salad effect. I will definitly make this recipe again, but with changes to add flavor. Perfect for left over rotisserie chicken. Thanks for the inspiration!
Excellent for a summer salad. I used canned, cooked wild rice, which helped cut the prep. time down. I also used a homemade vinegarette. We will definitely make this one again. Thanks for sharing!
I used heirloom red rice in place of the wild rice, because that is what I had. If you haven't tried red rice, do it! It is Fat Tuesday, so I seasoned the chicken with cajun spice. Also, I used extra virgin olive oil in place of the walnut oil. Quite yummy and healthy.
