  • 1 cup(s) wild rice


  1. 1 cup Wild rice
  2. 2 cups Water
  3. 1 tablespoon Vegetable oil
  4. 1/4 tsp Salt
  5. 1 cup Walnuts; coarsely chopped
  6. 1 rib Celery; sliced
  7. 4 Scallions; thinly sliced
  8. 1 cup Raisins
  9. 1 med Red apple (not Delicious); cored and diced
  10. Grated rind of 1 lemon
  11. 1/3 cup olive oil
  12. 2 ClGarlic; minced
  13. 1/4 tsp Salt
  14. Fresh ground black pepper
  15. 3 tablespoons Lemon juice

  16. Preparation
  17. Put the wild rice in a strainer and rinse under cold water. Place it in a medium saucepan along with the water, oil and salt. Cover, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to simmer. Cook 50 minutes, or until the rice is tender and all the water has been absorbed. (When the wild rice is done, it has a tend yet nubby texture.) (Sue’s Note: I drain off extra water if needed) Meanwhile, combine the walnuts, celery, scallions, raisins, apple and lemon rind in a large bowl. In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil and shake vigorously. Pour half of this dressing on the apple mixture and toss well. When the rice is done, let it cool until just warm. Combine with the fruit mixture and pour on the remainig dressing. Let sit at least 1 hour before serving at room temperature.
