How to Make ALMOND & APPLE WILD RICE SALAD

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.
  3. Add the apples and celery to rice. Drizzle with the orange juice dressing; toss to combine. Refrigerate, covered, until chilled. Sprinkle with almonds and other toppings, if desired.
