Cranberry Wild Rice Salad

5 Apr

We have this wonderful deli downtown.  It serves the best sandwiches I’ve ever had, hands down.  But what makes them truly unique is the beautiful salads displayed in their cold case.  I always have to get one on the side.  They are all so yummy!  This is one of my favorites, recreated by me… try it, it’s a  winner!

Cranberry Wild Rice Salad

  • 3 cups cooked wild rice
  • 1 box  (1 lb) orzo pasta, cooked as directed
  • 4 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup whole pecans
  • ½ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • ½  cup chopped green onion
  • 1 cup blush wine vinaigrette, more or less to taste

In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients.  Serve cold.  Serves 14.
