In large pot of boiling salted water, cover and cook wild rice until tender, about 35 minutes. Drain well and transfer to large bowl. Add apricots, apple, raisins and golden raisins. Set aside.

Mustard Honey Dressing: In small bowl, whisk together oil, orange juice, vinegar, mustard, honey, salt and pepper. Pour over rice mixture and toss gently. Let cool; cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 4 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.) To serve, add mint and toss to combine.
