I used to live in Minnesota, where a lot of wild rice is grown. The addition of wild rice to this salad gives it a robust flavor.

"This was very good and a different type of salad. I forgot to add the nuts, but didn't miss them. I'm sure it would be great with them as well."

"The flavors are excellent. I didn't have lemon juice, I used lime instead. I have had several requests for the recipe, and it will definitely be on my holiday table."
