Wild Rice Chicken Salad

I've had a similar salad at a favorite restaurant on an Indian reservation in northern Wisconsin before they changed chefs. I wanted to make this a main-dish salad, so added the chicken. It also works with left-over Thanksgiving turkey. You can use a mix of golden raisins and dried cranberries if desired. You may substitute a wild rice mix, but all wild rice is better!
