Put the rice and water in the cooking pot of the Cuisinart® Rice Plus™ Multi-Cooker. Select the Brown Rice function and press Start. While rice is cooking and cooling, prepare the vinaigrette. Put the shallots, mustard, salt, pepper and vinegar in a small bowl; stir with a whisk to blend. Add the oil and whisk until emulsified; reserve. Once the audible tone has sounded to indicate the end of cooking, turn the unit off and open the lid. Spread the wild rice on a baking sheet to cool. When rice has cooled, place in a large bowl with the apple, cranberries, pecans, onion and celery. Toss gently to combine. Add the reserved vinaigrette; toss to combine. Adjust seasonings and serve.
