Recipe Details

This Perfect Pinch inspired rice pilaf salad, dotted with dried, slightly tart cranberries, fresh, crisp apples and beautiful baby kale leaves, is absolutely irresistible in our easy to make sweet & savory vinaigrette.

For the Rice:

  1. In a rice cooker, add Zatarain's Creole Pilaf Mix with Long Grain and Wild Rice. Let it cook, removing when rice is tender.

For the Vinaigrette:

  1. In a blender, combine vinegar, honey, garlic, dijon mustard and 1/2 teaspoon Perfect Pinch Signature Blend. Blend to puree.
  2. Then, stream in canola oil until emulsified.

For the Assembly:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine rices, kale, craisins and apples. Dress with vinaigrette and season with remaining Signature Blend.
  2. Serve warm.


For softer texture, rehydrate cranberries in hot water for 2 minutes.

Great for catering! This recipe holds well for 24 hours.
