Wild Rice Salad

April 2nd, 2011

This was a huge hit at a family dinner last night – yeah, I should have taken a picture! Next time I grab a serving, I’ll take a pic.

I used hand-harvested wild rice bought from Northern Minnesota. I had this dish once on a drive to Duluth – yummy! For this, I also made my own mayonnaise with my immersion blender, using Dijon mustard and lemon juice. It made a looser mayo than store-bought, so you could probably thin store-bought down with milk or buttermilk or something.

4 cup wild rice (cooked)
¼ cup onion
½ cup celery
1 cup cashews
1 ½ cup green grapes (cut in half or quarters if really big)
1 lg. Apple (diced)
1 ½ cup of cubed turkey breast (cooked)
1 cup of real mayonnaise
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
Toss all together, chill for 2 hours. Serves 6-8
