Wild Rice Salad

I've wanted a good recipe for a wild rice salad for a long time and when I
tasted this the other day I knew I had finally found what I wanted.  I
switched the vegetables around a little bit, using more red bell pepper and
corn for color and eliminating the tomatoes and green beans.
