Taste of Fall with Autumn Wild Rice Salad

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.


Cool breezes, shorter days, chilly nights. Autumn is definitely on the horizon. Instead of loading up on fresh berries and other tasty fruits from the farmer's market, it's time to switch over to fall veggies. I really love making comfort foods when autumn rolls around. Squash, broccoli, potatoes... I don't think there are many fall foods that I don't like. They are so good in soups and stews, and also to eat as a stand alone side dish. Speaking of side dishes, I was perusing Golden Blossom Honey for some new fall favorite recipes and came across this Autumn Wild Rice Salad. After scrolling through the ingredient list, I knew it was going to quickly become a fall favorite.


There's such an explosion of fall favorite flavors wrapped up into this simple dish, you won't be sorry if you add it to your meal plan soon. Here's my tip for getting the most out of this dish. Make the salad several hours in advance and let the flavors marry together. Leaving it in the fridge overnight really yields the best flavor results. 

Ingredients
Rice:
1 cup wild rice
1 cup celery, chopped
1 red apple, cored and diced, no need to peel
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted
1/3 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup scallions, minced
1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
Dressing:
1/3 cup olive oil
1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY MUSTARD
salt and pepper to taste

  3. Rice sure is a good go to indeed. The cat wouldn't doubt you have poison candy apples either, probably take great delight in giving people the runs. The cat is on to you lol

  4. I do love rice. I like soups too. My favorites are cheesy potato, split pea, tomato based ones. I love pumpkin soup as well, but my family doesn't get into that one as much as I do.
