Wash the wild rice. Combine the rice with chicken broth and enough water to cover by 1 inch in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until rice is tender, about 40 min. Drain and cool. Stir in hazelnuts, cranberries, apricots and red onion.

Prepare dressing: In a small bowl whisk together the lime juice, honey, grated ginger, lime and lemon peel. Gradually whisk in the olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Pour over the rice and mix well. Gently fold in the blueberries. Arrange greens on a platter and mound rice on top.
