Introduction

Both sweet, and savory, refreshing, and nutritious, this salad pairs nicely with grilled poultry and meats. Works well when made with other whole grains such as barley or wheat berries. Would be great with raisins, craisins, or dried cherries added as well. Both sweet, and savory, refreshing, and nutritious, this salad pairs nicely with grilled poultry and meats.
