      Living in Sonoma County, we frequent the Rutherford Grill and always order this salad with our meal. It's absolutely fabulous. I use champagne vinegar instead of balsamic as I learned this secret from our server.

      Absolutely fabulous. Had to try this the minute I saw it as figs and wild rice are two of my favorites and we ate at the Rutherford on our honeymoon many, many years ago. This salad has so many wonder flavors and textures it hard to know were to start. Mad as written except had to use black mission figs as the store did not carry dried calimyrna figs. We enjoy our black rice a little chew so only cooked it for 36 minutes (perfect) instead of 45 minutes. Will absolutely be making again. Thanks so much for the post.

      This is lovely. I'll be taking it to a potluck next week. I really enjoyed the blend of flavours and I'm a huge fan of figs. Yumm!
