Warm Wild Rice Salad With Dried Fruit and Nuts

Recipe by Nikoma
READY IN: 1hr 40mins




  • Soak wild rice in a bowl of water overnight.
  • Rinse and place rice in a medium-sized pot with water or broth.
  • Bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 45 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
  • Remove from heat and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine remaining ingredients.
  • Add rice and toss to coat.
  • Serve immediately or let cool and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
  • From recipe creator - If making ahead, reheat rice salad on the stove top or bake at 350 degrees F. in a covered casserole dish for 20 minutes. (untried by me as of yet).
  • *Cook’s note: For best results, soak dried fruit in hot water or warm juice for 15 minutes or more to rehydrate slightly and give the fruit a juicier, chewy texture.
