Say you're going to a potluck, picnic, or barbecue. What do you bring? A
grain salad is always a brilliant choice. Not only can it be made
completely ahead, but it holds up beautifully. Plus, it's easy to
customize because the flavor combinations are virtually endless; grains
are like a blank canvas, so they go well with just about any ingredient.
And best of all, the method couldn't be simpler: Just cook the grain of
your choice, then toss with a homemade vinaigrette and your favorite veggies, fruits, beans, nuts and other add-ins.
