Ingredients
  • 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
Instructions
  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
