Soaked, uncooked wild rice is firm with an earthy flavor that pairs wonderfully with cranberries and walnuts.
Yield: 4-6 servings
Time: 5 minutes, plus soaking time*
- medium bowl
- wooden spoon
- 1½ c wild rice, soaked*
- 1 c dried cranberries
- 1 c cashews
- ¼ c cilantro or parsley, chopped
- 1 t salt
Drain the rice well, then toss with the other ingredients.
* Cover the rice with water and let soak for 2-3 days, changing the water twice a day. The rice will swell and bloom (open).
