Harvest Rice Salad

3 c water
1 c raw brown basmati rice
1/2 c raw wild rice
1/2 tsp salt
1 TBSP grated orange peel (divided use)
1 1/2 c hot water
1 c currants, golden raisins, chopped dried pears, or dried cranberries, or a combination
3/4 c pecans
1/2 c chopped fresh parsley
1/2 c chopped green onions
for dressing
1/3 c orange juice
2 TBSP vegetable oil
3 TBSP cider vinegar
2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary or sage
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper (or more to taste)

In a heavy saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, bring to a boil water, basmati rice, wild rice, salt, and half of the grated orange peel. When steam escapes, reduce the heat to low, and simmer until water is absorbed, about 35 min.
In a small bowl, whisk together the rest of the grated orange peel with all of the dressing ingredients and set aside.
In another bowl, pour the hot water over dried fruit, cover, and soak for 10 to 15 min, until softened. Drain well.
Spread the pecans on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 10 to 15 min, until lightly browned. Chop coarsely and set aside.
When rice is done, place it in a large bowl and cool for 10 min. Add the dressing and toss well. Stir in the drained fruit, pecans, parsley, and green onions. Set aside at room temperature for at least 30 min to allow the flavors to mingle. Serve at room temperature.
