Yummy, yummy! Ruth and I have been making variations of a wild rice salad at work for eons! Using a fully-cooked package of wild rice makes it a quick and easy dish to put together, too!

The basic is:

  • 3 cups cooked wild rice
  • a dried fruit
  • a nut
  • some cheese
  • some chopped vegetables
  • a dressing

Simple and easy!

The salad above was:

  • 3 cups wild rice
  • dried berry blend
  • chopped broccoli
  • chopped carrots
  • chopped celery
  • sliced almonds
  • dressed with an olive oil and lemon balsamic vinaigrette

It’s simplicity – and it’s yummy! AND it tastes even better the next day!

Other variations include our latest Berry Wild Salad, Cranberry Wild Rice Salad, Spring Fling Salad (we made a huge amount of this when we won “Best of Main Line” a couple of years ago.) And the salad that started it all, Wild and Easy Cranberry Salad From Fall River Rice.

No matter how you do it, it comes out great!
