Wild Rice Dressing
Wild rice (it’s actually a seed!) has a deeper flavor—as well as more protein, fiber, and antioxidants—than traditional rice. With grassy, smoky notes, it plays well with fall flavors like the dried cherries (full of potassium and beta-carotene) and pecans.
You can cook the wild rice up to three days ahead and keep it chilled, covered. Bring to room temperature (that will take about an hour) before assembling dressing.
