Wild rice and pecans lend great texture and nuttiness to this creative salad that's perfectly balanced with the subtle sweetness of grapes and orange marmalade.  Wild "rice", which is actually a semi-aquatic grass, is high in fiber and is beautifully enhanced with savory flavor when cooked in broth.
