This easy recipe showcases how easy it is to mix and match grain salads
  • 2 cups whole grain (I love farro)
  • ½ cup chopped veggies I (a green one - I use asparagus, green peppers)
  • ½ cup chopped veggies II (a bright one - I love red/yellow peppers or tomatoes)
  • ½ cup fruit (watermelon or avocado)
  • 2 tsp. herb (I love cilantro)
  • 2 tsp. oil (I love organic EVOO or organic cold pressed coconut oil for a sweeter taste)
  • Optional: Make an anti-inflammatory oil blend - use ¼ tsp. turmeric with ⅛ tsp. black pepper for every 1 tbsp. of oil. I also use this "paste" in my tomato sauces.
  1. Cook grain salad
  2. While grain is cooking, cut up fruits, vegetables and herbs
  3. Once grain is cooked - cool to room temperature (or rinse with cold water)
  4. Add fruit, vegetables and herbs
  5. Toss with oil
  6. Eat at room temperature or refrigerate
