      My family enjoyed this at our reunion! I added chopped kalamata olives and crumbled feta, plus used a rice/grain mix instead of wild rice. Definitely toast the almonds, and I used at least 2 T balsamic vinegar plus some extra S&P. Nice crunchy and refreshing salad. Traveled well, too.

      This is such a delicious summer side dish! My one small addition is raisins and/or craisins. I toss a handful or two into the rice during the last 5 minutes of cooking to soften them up a bit. I love the extra bit of sweetness the fruit adds. We usually serve this salad as a side dish with grilled chicken. Mixing leftover chicken in with the rice makes for a great lunch the next day too!

      Excellent salad. I omitted the instant rice and I only had parsley. I also toasted the almonds. This was simple, very tasty and a big hit.

      I took this to a potluck dinner and I dont think I have ever been asked for recipe more than I was for this one. I did make a few convienence changes - I used a box of long grain/wild rice blend and I accidently added the seasoning packet before I realized what I had done, so I left out the boullion cube. Also, instead of making my own vinagrette I used Archer Farms balsamic vinegrette. This was such a hit that I took it to Easter dinner at my mother's house and I had the same response - this is a fantastic recipe and I am so glad that you shared it. I did try this salad warm as well, and it was JUST as good!

      I got a similar recipe from a friend and Just made it. Made a few changes, I substituted goat cheese for feta, and raspberry red wine vinegar. I also roasted the peppers before adding them.

      My wife and I are very fond of wild rice and orzo. When I found the two combined together I knew this was a keeper. The only addition I made to the recipe was some black sliced olives. Outstanding, especially during the summer time. Thanks!!!!!
