17. An Easily Improvised GRAIN SALAD

Most of us hear "salad" and think "lettuce," but using grains as a base can be healthy, filling, and a really good way to use up all the extra brown rice you accidentally made last night. Throw in whatever veggies, cheese, beans, or meat you have on hand and top with your favorite homemade dressing. This Curried Spelt Salad is delicious, as is this Quinoa, Lentil & Feta Summer Salad, but feel free to improvise with whatever you have in the fridge.
