Turkey and Wild Rice Salad

    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    We enjoyed this very much for dinner tonight, accompanied by the creamy sweet potato soup from an old CL recipe. I made this as a warm salad (cold rice doesn't sound good, especially on a November evening). Cooked the rice yesterday, mixed it with the turkey and reheated tonight in the microwave. Sauteed the celery in a dash of olive oil, mixed it and the dressing in, and served on a bed of spinach leaves. I actually forgot the balsamic, which was fine--might be better without. Especially nice: the sweet potato soup also has dijon mustard and leeks, so there's a nice flavor echo when you put the two together in the same meal.
