Summer Trend – Leafy Grain Salads

Hearty whole grains such as bulgur, buckwheat, freekeh, quinoa, and wheat berries used to be reserved for fall and winter salads or sides, but with increased focus on areas like nutrition, protein, and texture, these ingredients are being combined with leafy greens year-round.

  • Bitter bok choy, sweet apples, and toothsome quinoa make a colorful, crunchy salad fit for any menu.
  • Toss finely chopped romaine with chick peas, Feta cheese, and fresh mint leaves.
  • Hand mix wild arugula with Israeli couscous, sliced strawberries, and shaved red onions.
  • For an ideal side for sandwiches and burgers, blend roasted red bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and chilled wheat berries with Markon’s Ready-Set-Serve Urban Blend.
