I wanted a wild rice salad with dried fruit and pecans, but nothing I found seemed to suit until I found this at the Whole Foods Market's website. I haven't made it yet, but I will update it after I have done so. Until then, times are estimated and include cooling time. For gluten-free, dairy-free, and/or vegan options, use a suitable vinaigrette.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring the water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add the wild rice and salt. Reduce heat and cook, covered, for 50-60 minutes or until rice is tender.
  2. Drain excess water from rice and cool.
  3. Transfer cooled rice to a large mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix well to combine.

Excellent. Made this last week from Whole Foods Cook Book. Chewy great tasting. I made per recipe but it could be changed to your needs. Thanks for posting!

I just love this salad! I also make it at home, but I add some olive oil, and 1 red bell pepper. We usually eat it in the next day, so the salad had time to absorve all the flavor. Just delicious!!!
