out of season…harvest grains salad recipe.

this salad is a bit out of season, but it is so good i haven’t been buying locally, organically, etc. etc. to make it. thought i’d post it anyway…the grains are from tj’s, but if you’re not so lucky to not live near one, you can probably substitute the mix with a mixture of orzo, quinoa, and israeli couscous. my goal this fall/winter is to create a similar salad using what’s in season.

Harvest Grains Salad

1 bag Harvest Grains mix from TJ’s (cooked according to package)

3 lemons, juiced

1 jar marinated artichoke hearts with marinade (reserve juice for dressing)

Olive oil to taste

Red wine vinegar to taste

Salt and pepper to taste

½ cup each Italian parsley and mint, chopped

Baby tomatoes, halved

Red and yellow peppers, sliced

Red onion, sliced

Seedless cucumber, sliced

1 block feta cheese

  1. While grains are still hot, mix with artichoke hearts, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, and salt and pepper in large bowl.
  2. When mixture is slightly cooled, mix in veggies.
  3. Mix in herbs.
  4. When mostly cooled, add in diced feta.
