Course: Salad
Cuisine: American
Servings: 10 people
  • ½ cup red quinoa
  • ½ cup black quinoa
  • ½ cup white quinoa
  • 1 cup Kamut (Trademarked)
  • 1 cup fresh Pomegranates
  • 1 cup chopped apples
  • 1-11 ounce can Mandarin Oranges, drained
  • 1 cup freeze dried Red Grapes (not reconstituted)
  • 1 cup fresh Blackberries
  • Salad greens to layer on a platter set aside
  • Freshly grated pepper
  • Your favorite Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar. For this salad I used the following ones:
  • Cranberry Pear White Balsamic Vinegar
  • Blood Orange Fused Olive Oil
  1. Cook the three colors of quinoa together as directed on package. Cook the Kamut as directed on package. Drain the grains. Combine all of the grains in a very large bowl after cooking. Add the remaining items (excluding the vinegar and oil) and mix together.
  2. Place a layer of salad greens on a platter. Mound the salad on top of the salad greens. Drizzle with your favorite Balsamic Vinegar and Olive Oil. Pepper to taste.
  3. You can add your favorite fruits and switch out the grains with just about any grain you enjoy eating! Red, White, Black Quinoa and Kamut are great food storage items. Add a little can of Mandarin Oranges and some Pomegranates and your dinner is ready! Thanks to Chef Brad for teaching me to use grains. Enjoy!
