 Wild Rice-Cucumber Salad  [T]  (makes a LARGE amount, keeps well)
 1 1/2 c wild rice, rinsed
 3 c  water
 3 cucumbers, sliced thick and slices cut into quarters
 1 red bell pepper, diced
 1 bunch green onions (or 1 Vidalia or red onion), chopped
 (the cucumbers can be increased with good results, and other veg.added)
 Bring the water to a boil, add the wild rice.  Return to boil, turn down to
 simmer for 40 minutes or until some of the grains burst.  Remove from heat and
 allow to cool. Drain any excess water.
 Toss cooled rice and other ingredients in a bowl.
 You may use any dressing you like, but I like to use one of these:
 Basil/Balsamic Vinegar Dressing [T] - I think I derived this from something
 1/3 c balsamic vinegar
 1 T soy sauce
 2 T water
 2 T fresh basil, chopped fine
 2 cloves garlic, chopped fine
 1 T onion, chopped fine
 1/2 t black pepper
 Combine in a jar, shake, and allow to sit, preferably overnight.  The salad
 will also be improved if it is dressed and allowed to sit for several hours,
 which is good, since there is a lot of it!
 The other dressing I use on this is from the New McDougall Cookbook, called
 the Savory Salad Dressing. [T]
 1 t Dijon mustard
 1/4 c red wine vinegar
 1/4 c water
 1/4 c soy sauce
 dash Tobasco sauce
 Combine in jar, shake, allow to sit for a few hours.
 I usually double the dressing recipe, put one recipe on the salad, and put the
 rest on the table for people who like extra.  You can always use it on
 something else.
