 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      ounces        wild rice
    2      tablespoons   pine nuts -- or more
    4                    sun-dried tomatoes -- chopped
      1/4  cup           pitted black olives -- sliced
                         minced parsley
      1/4  cup           olive oil
    2      tablespoons   red wine vinegar
                         salt and pepper
 
 Cook the rice in an abundant amount of boiling salted water in a large pot
 for 35 to 45 minutes or until the grains have almost doubled in size and are
 tender, but still chewy.  Drain the rice in a sieve and run cold water over
 to cool.  Drain thoroughly.  Toast the pine nuts lightly (dry skillet) until
 tan.  Let the nuts cool.  Combine the drained wild rice in a bowl with pine
 nuts, tomatoes, olives, etc.  Toss gently to mix.
 
 (odd that cheese is not listed!?!)

 Wild rice is a cereal grown in the Lake Superior area.  It’s woodsy flavor
 complements game and fowl.
