Wild Rice Salad

90 mins (prep 30, cooking 60)
15 ingredients
6-8 servings
Wanted to prepare a wild rice salad for New Years and could not decide which of the many already posted to choose. After a little tinkering in the kitchen, I came up with my own which combined the favorite elements from all the others. The wonderful colors from the spinach and cranberries give this a festive feel. Part of what gives this salad a nice dimension is the orange juice used in cooking the wild rice. There are lots of pieces to assembling the dish but the work can be done in stages. Moreover, it can be prepared a day in advance, tossing in the dressing just before service. For a vegan option, you might try replacing the honey with barley malt or rice syrup.
