Healthy Mexican Grain Salad

March 27, 2014


While we are in Mexico enjoying fresh chips and guac by the boat load, it’s only fair that I share a little Mexican flavor with you.  

This salad is one of my go-to meals for serving company, taking to the lake for the weekend and keeping for leftovers in my fridge all week!  

It’s easy to change according to what you have in your fridge, it’s colorful and full of fiber!
