Ingredients

1 1/2 c
uncooked wild rice
2 medium
apples, chopped
2 Tbsp
plus 1/2 cup orange juice
4 tsp
olive oil
4 tsp
red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp

3/4 tsp

2
celery ribs, chopped
1/2 c
unblanched almonds, coarsely chopped
optional toppings: halved green grapes, cubed cheddar cheese, and chopped red onion

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook the wild rice according to package directions. Transfer to a large bowl; cool completely.
2
While rice is cooking, toss apples with 2 Tbsp. orange juice in a small bowl. In another bowl, whisk the remaining orange juice, oil, vinegar, honey, salt and pepper.

Tip: the orange juice will prevent the apples from turning brown.
