Bring a quart of water and a teaspoon of salt to boil in a saucepan and add the rice.
Bring back to a boil, lower the heat, cover, and cook for about 30-40 minutes, or just until the rice is tender.
While the rice is cooking, combine the already fresh roasted pecans and cashews and give them a rough chop.
Drain the rice and put in a bowl.
Toss the warm rice with the rest of the ingredients.
Whisk together the dressing in a small jar.
Toss the salad with half of the dressing, and then refrigerate until completely chilled.
When ready to serve, add more dressing and toss well.
