What Makes This Pinworthy?

The flavor of this dish is absolute perfection. All of the ingredients pair together perfectly and come together to form this savory dish. Even the cranberries and almonds have a role to play- they add just the right amount of sweet and salty. Our testers had rave reviews about this dish, and we can guarantee your Thanksgiving guests will feel the same way.

This is one of those side dishes that takes a bit of time but is totally worth the time and effort. To speed up the preparation, we recommend making up the wild rice ahead of time and using both pre-sliced almonds and mushrooms.

Another wonderful thing about this dish is that it can be made ahead of time and simply reheated when it is time to serve it. The flavors taste just as wonderful the next day, and the texture and consistency hold well through the process of being chilled and then reheated.
