SAM_1814Food 206-52Food 224-59AMAZING SALAD! Made this for Thanksgiving and have made it at least once a month since.

I always make double the amount as it is just as good the next day,

I use Black Rice instead of Wild Rice as it cooks more evenly and it is a bit more economical .

The original recipe says to use unsalted cashews I used salted it was perfect.

  1. Cook rice according to package (this can be done a day in advance) let cool
  2. Make dressing and set aside
  3. Dice celery and onions
  4. Toast pecans in a dry pan
  5. When rice is cool combine all ingredients, serve at room temperature or cold
