Jacq wanted wild rice recipes so here is a great one! A beautiful, summery salad with a refreshing oriental twist. This was originally published in 'Bon Appetit.' It is actually simple to make and not labour intensive in spite of the cook time and prep time - a lot of that is waiting for things to cook or cool.
