Recipe by: Vegetarian Pleasures Put the wild rice in a strainer and rinse under cold water. Place it in a medium saucepan along with the water, oil and salt. Cover, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to simmer. Cook 50 minutes, or until the rice is tender and all the water has been absorbed. (When the wild rice is done, it has a tend yet nubby texture.) Meanwhile, combine the walnuts, celery, scallions, raisins, apple and lemon rind in a large bowl. In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil and shake vigorously. Pour half o this dressing on the apple mixture and toss well. When the rice is done, let it cool until just warm. Combine with the fruit mixture and pour on the remainig dressing. Let sit at least 1 hour before serving at room temperature.

I made this recipe for an Oregon Food Bank volunteer potluck dinner. It was a huge hit! Several people asked for the recipe. Next time I might cut back a little on the scallions. Thank you for this hit!
