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.
