"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Ingredients:  
1 box wild rice w/long grain, cooked according to directions
1 box brown rice, cooked according to directions
2 cans mandarin orange slices, drained
1/2-1 c. dried sweet cherries (or cranberries)

Directions:
Directions:
If preparing day ahead: combine cooled rice with all the
cherries and 1/2 diced turkey breast and 1 can mandarin
oranges. Mix in enough dressing (OJ concentrate, mustard,
water, olive oil, salt & pepper) to coat, and retain the rest.
Cover and chill. About 3 hours before serving, add remaining
turkey & oranges; fold in remaining dressing and adjust
seasonings*.

*You can add more mustard, OJ concentrate, etc, etc--like
all of my recipes, this is NOT "by the book"!

If preparing that day: combine all ingredients at least 3 hours
ahead for flavors to meld & adjust to taste. Cover & refrigerate.

Personal Notes:
This amount serves 10-12 ladies (so
increase proportionately, if it's a co-ed group!) as a side dish.

I'd recommend taking it out of the refrigerator 30 minutes or
so beforehand to bring up closer to room temp, so those
flavors can really meld.
