Two very traditional holiday foods are at the heart of these Rescued Recipes. Both are native crops to America, but neither one gets any “airplay” until the holiday season. That’s when wild rice and cranberries take center stage – or at least “side” stage – on our feasting table.
But two Rescued Recipes could turn these once-a-year specialties into everyday favorites!
Wild Rice Salad
Scottsdale resident Cheryl Korwin clipped this one from a magazine years ago, and it has since earned a permanent place in her 4-inch thick loose-leaf binder of “Favorites.”
“It’s such a hit during the holidays, but we make it all year long. It’s so simple, healthful, and tasty! I always make extra so my guests have a nice cup of my wild rice salad to take home. It’s always been one of my easy to make, go-to favorites!”
Cheryl, we went wild over this salad! We loved the flavor, texture, and the color! It’s festive, fun, and goes really well with chicken, pork, fish, or just great as a main meal!
