This recipe is wildly healthy with good carbs, healthy fats, and protein too! It is awesome on its own but also delicious to add to mixed greens in a salad! This is super easy to make and you will love it. You can serve it cold all summer long for a refreshing and delicious meal.
What you need:
- 1 1/2 c. dried grains (found here, use quinoa, millet, buckwheat, etc.)
- 3 cups water
- 3/4 c. dried cranberries
- 1/3 c. slivered almonds
- 2 Tbs chia seeds
- 1 c. chopped greens (kale, spinach, etc.)
- 1/2 cup your favorite Raspberry Vinaigrette
How to Make:
Boil the grains as directed on the package (usually 2 c of water to every 1 cup of grains.) After the grains are cooked stir every so often to help them cool a bit.
Finely chop the greens (sometimes I like to add chopped celery for a crunch as well)
Add all the ingredients to a mixing bowl and stir well until mixed.
Add more dressing if you want more flavor. You can also add salt, pepper and a pinch of sugar to enhance the flavor.
Keeps up to a week in the refrigerator.
