Chilled Multigrain Summer Salad with Cranberries and Almonds

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

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.
