Wild Rice Turkey Salad Recipe

I tasted a wonderful wild rice and chicken salad at a restaurant during a stay at our cabin, so I developed this recipe using turkey when I returned home.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + chilling YIELD:6-7 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cups cooked wild rice
  • 3 cups cubed cooked turkey
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/3 cup chopped celery
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained and halved
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1 cup cashews, divided
  • 1 cup halved seedless red grapes

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the rice, turkey, onions, celery and water chestnuts. Combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, salt, pepper and dill; pour over salad and gently stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
