I love this Apple-Wild Rice Salad for a light and tasty lunch. If I am serving wild rice for dinner, I always cook extra so that I can use it the following day to make this superb salad. This is a really fresh and fruity salad which combines the  crunchy apple slices, raisins and grapes. 

It’s super simple to make too. I start by tossing the apple slices with orange juice and vinegar. I then add the grapes, raisins, cilantro, oil, and pepper before stirring through the rice. I like to serve my salad with toasted chopped pecans sprinkled on top! 

To make my version of Apple-Wild Rice Salad, you will need the following ingredients:
