Wild Rice Fruit Salad

Comment on this recipe

If you prepare this ahead of time, do not add the Cool Whip or coconut until the day you plan to serve it. Before adding it, drain off excess liquid that will have formed.

Ingredients

1 cup rinsed wild rice
1 can (16 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained and dried with a paper towel
1 can (16 ounces) pineapple tidbits, drained and dried
1 jar (3 ounces) maraschino cherries, drained and patted dry
1 cup grapes, green or red, cut in half
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
1 package (.3 ounces) orange Jell-O
1 container (13 ounces) Cool Whip
1/2 cup shredded coconut

Instructions

Boil rice in 4 cups of water for 45 minutes. Let rice stand for 40 more minutes, then drain and cool. Mix together remaining ingredients and sprinkle with Jell-O. Mix well with the fruit. Fold in Cool Whip and mix well. Sprinkle the top with coconut and refrigerate at least an hour. Makes about 12 cups.
