Wild Rice Waldorf Salad from Moosewood Rest. Low-Fat Faves

Soak 2/3 cup wild rice in hot water for half an hour, then add 1 cup long-grain brown rice, and 1 1/2 cups more water. Bring to boil, then simmer with lid on for 45 mins or until rice is as tender as you like it.

Meanwhile, dice a nice tart apple and toss with some lemon juice.
Add 1 bell pepper (sweet red is very nice, but any'll do) (diced), 1 cup celery (also diced, but we leave this out -- don't like celery much!), 1/2 cup of minced red onion, 1/2 cup currants, raisins, dried cranberries, dried cherries or whatever dried fruit you love best, and 1/4 cup toasted almonds, walnuts, pecans, or whatever nut you love best (coarsely chopped or slivered).

The dressing:

Whisk together 1/2 cup oj, 1 T maple syrup or honey (but maple syrup, really), 1 t ground coriander and 1/2 t of ground cardamom (but we use half again as much spice as the recipe calls for, and sometimes even double. Moosewood is like that!) Now, Moosewood calls for 1 T of canola or other veg. oil, but do please try a nice nut oil -- very yummy!!!
