Very nice salad! I don't use much wild rice but found this very satisfying! I did increase the amount of cranberries & also used Dijon honey mustard! Thanks much for this keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe cooking game]

Wonderful recipe! The dressing is incredible--I'm thinking about trying it on regular salads. I think I'll try it without the spinach next time. I might also try making it sweeter by throwing in some golden raisins, or substituting toasted hazelnuts for the pecans. This recipe will be a great base from which to experiment. Thanks for the great recipe!

I really liked this but I think it could use a little more dressing. There seemed to be a lot of salad to dressing ratio. The dressing is delicious, so next time I double it and use any excess on a green salad if necessary, although I could eat the dressing by the spoonful!

The dressing alone from this is fantastic! I did adjust the amounts for the dressing slightly, and used toasted walnuts in place of pecans. what a great salad Toni, thanks for sharing!...Kitten:)

Lovely salad and dressing: a great blend of flavours and very healthy. I made this last night and we ate it this evening. I left the stalks on the baby spinach leaves as I usually eat them, though if I were making this for guests then I’d remove them! Just loved the orange juice in both the cooking of the rice and in the dressing. I made this exactly to the recipe except for omitting the cayenne pepper (personal taste preference) and adding 2 cloves of minced garlic and half a minced onion to the dressing as I’ve never used the obviously time-saving garlic powder and onion powder. Next time I make this, I intend adding some roasted red pepper. Thanks for sharing.
