For a truly outstanding beginning to your meal, serve this wild rice salad topped with crisp duck pieces and wait for the compliments to pour in. It is elegant enough for the most formal occasion, yet simple enough for anyone to prepare.
2 cups (10 ounces) wild rice
Rice: Rinse rice well in a large sieve under cold water and drain. In a medium sauce pan, heat oil over medium heat. Saute onion, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 5 minutes. Add rice and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Stir in water and broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until rice is tender, about 1-1. hours. (Grains will split open but not all liquid will be absorbed.) Drain well in a colander and cool.
Duck: Preheat oven to 375
