Wild Rice Recipe from the Retreat

Wild Rice Salad

This is a guideline (substitute anything you have on hand).

To cooked wild rice add: chopped green onions, thinly sliced/diced dried apricots, dried cranberries, chopped parsley, toasted almonds/pecans. (I often put in diced peppers). Use your favourite vinaigrette dressing or try the following: whisk together 1/2 c frozen orange juice concentrate, 3+ tbsp balsamic vinegar, 1/3 c olive oil/vegetable oil, 2 tsp Dijon mustard, 1 tsp+ minced garlic, S & P/other herbs.

It was a wonderful weekend. Thanks to Rita/others who organized it and to everyone for the great company.
