Reviews forAlmond & Apple Wild Rice Salad
"I have made this recipe twice and both timesmy guests enjoyed the salad very much and asked for the recipe."
"I thought this recipe was just okay. It was a little oily for me. I think I should have used a better olive oil. Got lots of raves at a luncheon tho."
