Boozy Rice with Nuts and Berries Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

Excellent! Easy! Directions are spot on. There is some plan ahead time needed for this dish because the flavors really do have to sit for a time in order to blend. Right after completing the recipe I tasted the dish and thought, "meh". Served 3 hours later with dinner and it was, "wow"! One small change - I left out some of the olive oil to cut back on fat and calories. I drizzled over the top and mixed in - probably 1/8 to 1/4 cup. Everything else was followed to the letter. Great, healthy alternative to potato or macaroni salads in the summer time.

Very good. I save 5 stars for extraordinary, and while this is excellent, it doesn't quite make extraordinary. I will for sure make this again.

I was looking for a fruity pilaf recipe so thought I'd give it a try. Clearly I have reading issues because I didn't notice this is served at room temp. I used craisins, soaked in boiling water to plump, instead of raisins and halved the olive oil. It's good even without the mint but will add next time. Thanks!

I followed the recipe to the letter, and it was fantastic! Full of citrus flavor for sure, I think next time I'll cut back on the orange zest... but the mint and orange and marsala blended to become a tasty dish that I was proud to serve. Thanks for a great recipe!

Well, I took a chance on this unrated rice recipe and am glad I did! I had some leftover brown rice to use, but no wild rice. I had to use regular brown raisins, and had no mint, but this is still scrumptious! I used the marsala wine, and a bit of sea salt and fresh ground pepper. Good way to use up leftover rice, and I will make this again!
