Wild Rice Salad

I can't even count how many times I've made this Wild Rice Salad.  It's great served cold or at room temperature, so it's perfect for making ahead or traveling to a pot luck.

* 1 box Uncle Ben's original wild rice
* 1 naval orange, juiced
* 1 tbs. olive oil
* 1/4 c. dried cranberries
* 1/4 c. chopped pecans
* 1/3 c. crumbled feta cheese
* salt, pepper

Prepare the rice according to package instructions.  Meanwhile, prepare the orange vinaigrette by whisking together the juice of one orange, olive oil, salt and pepper.  When the rice is done cooking, fluff it up with a fork and add the orange vinaigrette a bit at a time (just be careful not to overdress the rice).  Add the pecans, cranberries, and crumbled feta.  Cool at room temperature, then refrigerate until ready to serve.  Enjoy!
