    Ingredients :

  • 1 ½ cups uncooked wild rice
  • 6 cups water
  • ⅓ cup tarragon vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 clove garlic
  • minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • crumbled
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • ⅔ cup safflower oil
  • 3 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • ½ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • ½ cup sliced green onion
  • ½ pound sugar snap peas
  • strings removed
  • ½ cup toasted slivered almonds
  • Methods :

  • Bring the wild rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender but not mushy, 20 to 45 minutes depending on the variety of wild rice. Drain off any excess liquid, fluff the rice with a fork, and cook uncovered 5 minutes more. Scrape into a mixing bowl, and refrigerate until cold.
  • Whisk the vinegar, mustard, sugar, salt, garlic, dried tarragon, black pepper, and red pepper flakes in a small mixing bowl until smooth. Pour the safflower oil into the dressing in a thin, steady stream while whisking vigorously until the oil has been fully incorporated into the dressing; set aside. Stir the chicken, celery, parsley, and green onion into the cooled wild rice. Stir in the dressing until evenly blended. Cover the rice mixture, and refrigerate 4 hours to overnight.
  • Bring a small saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the sugar snap peas, and cook uncovered until just tender, about 30 seconds. Drain in a colander, then immediately immerse in ice water for several minutes until cold to stop the cooking process. Once the peas are cold, drain and cut into 1-inch diagonal pieces. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Stir the peas and toasted almonds into the rice mixture just before serving.
