  3. Combine the wild rice, rice pilaf, chicken, sweet pepper, and pea pods strips in a large bowl.
  4. Stir together salad dressings and black pepper in a small bowl. Pour over rice mixture. Stir gently to mix. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours.
  5. To serve, arrange green onions around edges of 6 to 8 chilled salad plates. Spoon rice mixture into center. Garnish each plate with additional pea pods, if desired. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
