Grain is a common ingredient in many salad recipes as the main source or protein and/or fibre. Grains may include rices, noodles, beans or more raw grain types like quinoa.
This is a light and healthy salad or side dish. If you can't find black beans, kidney beans work equally well.
This is a great combo of a salad that doesn't skimp on taste or good nutrition! The chickpeas and feta are a great taste together.
This brown rice salad recipe is made every Christmas without fail. It is a favourite of every member of the family, and whenever we have guests, they remark on the flavour of this beautiful colourful brown rice salad as well. Goes great with a bbq, other crisp leaf salads, cold meat, just about everything, use as a side dish or as a main with other salads and meat. The green and red capsicum and the black raisins make it a very colourful salad.
A Middle Eastern side dish comprised of cooked broad beans, tomatoes, onion and cucumber with a lemon dressing. Simple and delicious.
One of my favourite couscous recipes there are great colours and flavours with ingredients like capsicum, olives and cumin.
