Wild Rice Pilaf

Gary requested salmon for dinner and I flipped through some issues of Fine Cooking for side dish inspiration. I decided on this pilaf, because I happened to have dried apricots in the pantry and pine nuts in the freezer.

At dinner, he made a special point of saying several times how good the rice was. It's the same rice I always buy (Lundberg Country Wild, "a wild blend of gourmet brown rice"), I just don't usually make a pilaf and I don't usually add fruit and nuts. I guess I will from now on! I think I'll try it with dried cranberries and pecans, too.

The rice sounds good. I think I might enjoy the cranberries and pecans. I have been craving cranberries lately. Mom

the real question is - did you peek at the rice?! if so, shame on you! :-)
