  • 3 cups wild rice
  • Salt
  • 4 blood oranges, or navel oranges
  • 3 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 scallions, cut into 1/8-inch rounds
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 bunch flat-leaf parsley leaves, finely chopped (1/2 cup)


  1. Cook wild rice in a large pot of salted boiling water until just tender, about 40 minutes. Drain in a colander.

  2. Meanwhile, cut away peel and pith from oranges; holding oranges over a bowl to catch the juice, remove segments from white membrane; place segments in the bowl.

  3. Combine vinegars, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and pepper in a bowl. Slowly whisk in olive oil.

  4. In a large serving bowl, combine rice, scallions, dried cranberries, parsley, and orange sections and their juice. Drizzle vinaigrette over the salad, gently toss, season, and serve.
