    HeatherFeather's Note:

    This salad has a very different taste and looks lovely on a luncheon table. I usually prepare the rice the night before so it is ready to prepare in the morning, by lunch the salad is ready to serve. I use Rice a Roni Wild Rice Pilaf mix for this recipe most often, but you may use the wild rice mix of your choice. Adapted from a recipe found in Quick Cooking.

      Excellent rice salad, Heather. I followed your lead and made the rice the night before, then mixed everything together and let refrigerate all day. We had a quick, easy supper that night. A wonderful combination of flavors. I served on lettuce leaves with iced tea. Light in calories but very filling. Thanks.

      A very nice salad! Actually, you could add some grilled chicken to the dish and have a one dish supper. I especially liked the flavors of the marinated artichokes and mushrooms with the avacado. The dish was easy to prepare. I will be using this recipe again. Thanks!

      This is scrumptious and healthy. I made it with Inez's Italian Herb Salad Dressing (#26706) and took it to work for lunch, although it would be great at a potluck or as a side dish at a dinner party. Thanks for a tasty recipe!
