You may think you need a recipe to make a bean and grain salad, but with this formula, you can build one based on what you’ve got around, what’s in season, or what you’ve got a taste for.
In this week’s USA Weekend video we demonstrate how simple it is to create your own. Just pick a bean, pick and cook a grain, choose a vegetable or two and an herb. Dress it simply with olive oil and vinegar, lemon or lime juice, or toss it with your favorite vinaigrette. Try it. This may be the only bean and grain recipe you’ll ever need.
