Quick and Easy Five Grain Salad

We've been making a bunch of whole grain salads this summer. We usually do a couscous quinoa thingie that is delicious and filling but we spied this new product from President's Choice and decided to try it.

  It's their new five grain blend with spelt, barley, rice, kamut, Khorasan wheat and oats. Here is the package just in case you're looking for it in the shop. It's a smallish bag.

 You just boil the grains for ten minutes until it's cooked through and then drain it. I added a cup of acini di pepe pasta to the grains during the last three minutes of cooking to bulk things up a bit.

We added some of our chopped up garden veggies to the salad. We chopped up some green onion and parsley from the back yard. Then we chopped up some cucumber and tomato and grated some carrot and lemon zest. We dressed the salad with olive oil and lemon juice salt and pepper.

It really is a delicious salad..... and healthy to boot! 
Hope your family enjoys this as much as our does.
