From a Sun-Maid magazine ad - different from any I found posted. Makes a nice "almost" sweet side to pork and turkey.

Perfect for the holidays - or any time you want a great rice pilaf. A combination that comes together to make for a wonderful side. Used pecans but I am sure it would be equally good using almonds. Thank you for sharing - it's in my holiday favorites cookbook.

I used the boxed rice mix, & it was fine, but another time I'd like to make up some wild rice myself, not from a box! Loved the combination of the pilaf with raisins & the TOASTED pecans! Definietly a keeper recipe! Thanks for sharing! [Made & reviewed as a kidnapped recipe in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #16]

Wonderful pilaf! I used almonds instead of pecans and just used a combination of white rice and wild rice with some herbs thrown in rather than a boxed mix. Thanks for posting!
