    This is from one of my new cookbooks by Cookshelf - Rice and Risotto. I have not tried it, but the ingredients sound wonderful. Hope you agree and enjoy it!!! Cook time is the time it takes to cook the rice.

      This is probably one of the BEST salads I have ever had. Great combination of ingredients. We especially love the walnuts, bacon and wild rice that goes perfectly ith the scallops. This elegant salad is perfect when you want to impress your guests. Thanks for sharing, Bobtail. It's a keeper for sure!!!

      What a wonderful explosion of flavours, this was a great recipe which we all enjoyed! It was an easy recipe to follow and I had already cooked some wild rice whilst making another zaar recipe, so it all fitted in very well! I think the reason I decided on 4 instead of 5 stars, is the explosion of flavours......we all felt that it was just a little bit TOO busy, and there were too many flavours.....if I was to adjust it in the future, I think I would leave out the shallots or cut them down - the scallops were a bit overtaken by the "onion" flavour. Other than that, it was pure perfection, as it has lots of my favourite ingredients in it! Thanks Bobtail for posting a very elegant & tasty recipe....I'll make it again and try it out minus the shallots! FT:-)P.S. You should try it yourself, it is really VERY good!!
