Smokey flavored pecans, sweet and tart dried cranberries and an earthy wild rice mix create a side dish so good, your guests will be asking for seconds! A quick timesaver: I use a wild rice pilaf mix. It cuts the prep time down.
2 boxes wild rice pilaf mix
1 c toasted chopped pecans
1 Tbsp margarine
1 c dried cranberries
1. Prepare rice according to the box’s instructions
2. To toast pecans, melt 1 Tbsp margarine and combine with pecans. Pour in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 7 minutes. Let cool.
3. When the components are prepared, combine and serve warm.
