Servings: 6 to 8
This salad-in-a-glass does two great things: The presentation makes a hearty salad much more visually appealing. Also, by using grains and beans as accents (instead of weighing down the salad with too much of either), the bright summer vegetables get to shine, and the character of the salad is much more complex. It’s fun to layer this salad in individual glasses, but feel free to scatter the ingredients in layers on a platter or in a shallow glass bowl.

This is one of the best salads I have ever made. The flavor is incredible and the presentation is really cool.
I’ve made this twice for parties and it was a hit both times. There is a lot of prep but most of it can be made the night before and then assembled before serving. I like to use a package of Harvest Grains Blend from Trader Joe’s for the grain portion of the salad that in addition to grains also includes orzo, couscous, lentils and tiny chickpeas.
Really interesting summer salad recipe.
