Wild Rice Waldorf Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + chilling YIELD:10-12 servings


  • 1 can (8 ounces) pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cups cooked wild rice
  • 2 medium green apples, diced
  • 2 medium red apples, diced
  • 1 celery rib, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • Lettuce leaves, optional


  • 1. Drain pineapple, reserving 1 tablespoon juice (discard remaining juice or save for another use); set pineapple aside.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, sugar, lemon juice and reserved pineapple juice. In a large bowl, combine the rice, apples, celery and pineapple. Add the dressing and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • 3. Just before serving, stir in walnuts. Serve in a lettuce-lined bowl if desired. Yield: 10-12 servings.

"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."
