Wild Rice Salad with Dried Cherries

super easy, good and healthy.
1 package (6.2 oz.) fast cooking long-grain and wild rice mix (I’ve used brown and it’s just as good)
1 medium unpeeled apple, chopped (1 cup)
1 medium green bell pepper, chopped (1 cup)
1 medium stalk celery, chopped (1/2 cup)
½ c. dried cherries (I've used craisins)
2 T. soy sauce
2 T. water
2 t. sugar
2 t. cider vinegar
1/3 c. dry-roasted peanuts, toasted

Cook rice mix as directed on package – except omit butter. Let rice cool while you prepare the rest. I put spread it out in the serving dish. Let cool 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cool.
Mix apple, bell pepper, celery and cherries in large bowl.
Mix soy sauce, water, sugar and vinegar in small bowl until sugar is dissolved.
Add rice and soy sauce mixture to apple mixture.
Gently toss until coated. Add peanuts; gently toss.
