Wild Rice Salad

Wild Rice Salad created by Barb 3663

I recently had this rice salad at a baby shower and everyone wanted the recipe. It's beyond delicious! So many tasty treats in this one. The lady that made it told me she got the recipe from a local chef here in Saratoga Springs.

    This salad was AMAZING!!! I recently got some wild rice for another recipe (from Amazon because I couldn't find it in any nearby store: https://smile.amazon.com/Natures-Earthly-Choice-Minnesota-Cultivated/dp/B00B18VKZ4/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Nature%27s+Earthly+Choice+Minnesota+Cultivated+Wild+Rice&qid=1626193605&s=grocery&sr=1-1) and I was looking for other wild rice recipes. The only change I made was with the apricots, since I only had 3 left in the package. I used those and also cut up 1 large Medjool date to supplement. I allowed the salad to marinate overnight with the dressing and, oh my! It is wonderful!! Definitely a keeper.

    Delicious! I also used a rice mixture, only because I never found straight wild rice. Otherwise followed the recipe. I'll definitely be making it again.

    I always find it quite irritating when people rate a recipe at the high end or low end and then find that they did not follow the recipe at all... usually by the time they finish it does not look anything like the original. This being said... I am only able to give MYSELF 4 stars. I changed the recipe by adding only 1/4 cup of oil instead of the called for 3/4 cup for the dressing, and used a wild rice, basmati brown and sweet red rice mixture. With this change I can give the recipe 5 stars . The various textures - chewey, crunchy, and flavors - sweet, salty made this one of the best salads I've had. Thank you for posting this recipe, and please forgive me for the changes I made.<br/>GregV
