Wild rice with chicken, oranges and cranberries

This ended up not being a salad as originally planned, since we had already eaten up the salad mix. But I can see how it would be god served over a bed of lettuce…Two Fat Als had an interesting recipe for Wild Rice Salad with Chicken, Fruit and Cashews. We aren’t big fans of dates, and cashews are out due to allergies, but it seemed like a good idea. So here’s my version

Wild Rice with Chicken, Oranges and Dried Cranberries

  • 2 chicken breast, grilled and dicedWild rice and chicken with oranges and cranberries
  • 2 cups Lundberg Wild Rice Blend
  • 2¬† oranges, peeled and cut into small pieces
  • 3 Tbs olive oil
  • 3 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup torn fresh mint

Cook the chicken, or use leftovers. Cook the rice as directed. Combine the oil, lemon juice, vinegar and sugar in a small bowl. In a large bowl, mix the rice, chicken, dressing, oranges, cranberries and mint. The original called for serving this over a be of lettuce, which would be nice, but we ate it straight, which was good too.
