In a saucepan, combine the wild rice, salt and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until kernels are open and tender but not mushy, around 45 to 55 minutes. Drain, rinse in cold water and drain again.
In a large mixing bowl, combine wild rice, onion, blueberries and oranges.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the dressing and orange zest. Drizzle the dressing mixture over the rice mixture and stir to coat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in almonds just before serving.
