Wild Rice Salad with Apples and Walnuts

Larry's sister Cyndy made this for us a decade or more ago, and then made it again for Thanksgiving this year, which reminded me how delicious it is!

1 C wild rice, dry
1 C chopped walnuts
1 C golden raisins
1 large apple, cored & diced
1-2 celery ribs, sliced
grated rind of lemon
4 scallions thinly sliced

3 T lemon juice
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp salt
fresh ground black pepper
1/3 C olive oil

Cook rice (4 parts water, 1 part rice). Combine walnuts, celery, scallions, raisins, apple, lemon rind in a large bowl. In a jar with a tight lid, combine dressing ingredients and shake vigorously. Pour half of the dressing on the apple mixture and toss well.

Combine rice with food mixture and pour on remaining dressing. Let sit 1 hour at room temp and serve on lettuce if desired. Can make the day before and let it sit overnight; it will be fine.
