COMMENT:
I just ate this for the first time at J Alexanders last night. I agree with the earlier post - there were slivered almonds. I also remember dried cranberries and currants.

My neighbor made this yesterday and I told her I loved it so much that I was going to write a review for it! It is incredible! I think she must have doubled the recipe so it works well if you do that. It's a really pretty salad too with all the different colors and the combination of orzo and wild rice.

Big hit at family gathering. I tripled everything except the dressing, which I doubled. I also added crushed toasted pecans. Turned out great!

Definitely a five! I serve this a lot. It is also a great dish to take to a luncheon or cookout!
Heavenly, Diabetics….watch the carbs as it is loaded.
