Serves: 12 Servings
  • Salad
  • 2 cups mixed grains (like farro, freekeh, wheat berries, wild rice, and quinoa, pearl barley, or any combination of the above)
  • 1 cup baby arugula leaves
  • 1 cup parsley leaves, minced
  • ½ cup tarragon leaves, minced
  • ½ cup mint leaves, cut in a chiffonade
  • ½ cup pecans
  • 1 cup radishes, cut into thin slices, preferably using a mandolin
  • ½ cup shallot, minced
  • 1 cup dried fruit (I used currants, blueberries, and cranberries although any combination will be great)
  • Salad Dressing
  • ¼ cup champagne vinegar (or sherry vinegar)
  • ¼ cup walnut oil (if you don't have walnut oil, up the total amount of olive oil to ½ cup)
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • pinch fine-grain sea salt
  1. Cook the grains according to their cooking instructions
  2. Alternately, the original recipe calls for cooking the grains together in one pot.
  3. To do this: bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil. Adding the grains to cook until just tender, ~ 25 minutes
  4. (With grains like wild rice and wheat berries, add them to the pot first and cook 10 minutes before adding remaining grains).
  5. Drain the grains into a colander, then set aside until warm to the touch.
  6. Combine all the salad ingredients in a large bowl and toss well.
  7. Drizzle the salad dressing over top and toss to combine
