Another Wild Rice Salad

1 cup wild rice
2 cups water
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
sprinkle salt
1 cup walnut pieces
1 stalk celery, diced
4 scallions, chopped in 1/4" slices
1 cup golden raisins or dried cranberries
1 small granny smith apple, cored & diced
zest of 1 lemon

juice of 1 lemon
3-4 Tablespoons olive oil
dash of garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

Rinse the rice. Place in a saucepan with the water, oil, and salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer 45-50 minutes. (Drain if you have too much water).

Do all the chopping, dicing, etc., and place everything in a large bowl.

Combine the dressing ingredients and whisk well (or put them in a small jar and shake). Toss half the dressing with the fruits & veggies

Let rice cool to room temperature, then add to the bowl and mix with the remaining dressing.

This is best if it sits an hour or even overnight before serving, to let the flavors blend.
