Weekday Wild Rice and Apple Salad

This is a leftover creation. I encourage you to experiment!


1 ½ C leftover, cold, cooked Trader Joe’s wild rice medley
3 celery stalks, chopped
¼ small onion
¼ to 1/3 C golden raisins
Handful of toasted pecans, rough chopped
1/2 C chopped fresh cilantro
1 large Fuji apple, diced
Juice from one lemon
Drizzle of mild olive oil
Salt and pepper
¼ C sweet
Thai chili sauce


  • Mix all ingredients. Serve!
  • NOTE: You could easily add cooked shrimp, chicken, or even calamari…or for a really fancy twist, I suggest cold duck!
