      This was wonderfull. Made the dressing as stated but use extra virgin olive oil and had no coriander so left it out. The rice was still warm when I used it. I left out the apricots and pecans because I had none but I added cucumber and spinach leaves which was wonderful. As well as some chopped onion and some blanched mushroom slices which I had to use before they went bad. I diced the avocado and folded them into the salad as well and just placed scoops on a plate rather than making little bowls. All in all this was a great dish. I loved my addition of cucumber and recomend trying it as it was very refreshing and, I think, goes well with the other ingredients. Next time I will try using come cashews, since they are the only nut my DH really likes and I think it would be nice in here. He, btw, took seconds and thirds (piled high on his plate). I served this along side of grilled steaks. I think it would also be nice with grilled or baked chicken and either one (chicken or steak) cut into pieces and placed on top of the salad would be a nice variation. I also thought that craisins (dried cranberries)would be nice (especially in the fall). It really is a wonderful dish that you can have lots of fun with. I am sure I will be making this often. It would be great for a potluck and I have been looking for something to take on hiking picnics with us and I think this would be great for that. Oh, and it was very good in a sandwich wrap for lunch today as well. Thanks for a great recipe.

      Well, this was really delicious! The combination of the wild and brown rice was really scrumptious, and adding the dressing, nuts, and fruit was spectacular. I admit, I left out the raisins, but I thought that the dried apricots added the perfect touch as a counterpoint to the coolness of the avocado (I only used half an avocado per serving, due only to calories & fat - I imagine it would be pretty incredible with the recommended amount of avocado). This was really delicious, and would taste wonderful warm in a baked acorn squash half, too. Lovely dish, rsarahl - glad I took the dare to make this one!

      This sounded like it would be good, and it was! I bought some wild rice awhile back and was looking for a good recipe to use it in. My husband can't eat nuts so I just served him the brown and wild rice with butter. He loved it! My daughter and I had the fruit and nuts in vinaigrette mixed with the rice.. Delicious! With the avocado, it made a filling dish and was enjoyed by all. Thanks so much!
