READY IN: 3hrs 10mins
Recipe by Ducky

A great salad or side dish and can be made ahead of time. Just take out of the refrigerator and serve. I got this recipe from my mother, who got it from a family friend, who got it from ??? Cook time includes refrigerator time (estimated).

The red wine vinegar and wild rice was a great taste combination. I did not know if you meant 1-cup dry or cooked wild rice. So I cooked a 4-ounce box of rice, which after being cooked was 1 1/2 cups. I put everything together the night before but waited until it was time to serve to add the nuts. The raisins plumped up nicely since I made it the night before. Next time I want to make this using the dried cherries. Thank you Ducky, I will be taking this too many family gathering to come!!
