Quick Five-Grain Salad
Quinoa cooks up light and fluffy in minutes (it's done when the telltale curlicue wisp unfurls). This Quick Five-Grain Salad's subtle flavor comes through whether served hot, cold, or at room temperature. It can stand in for couscous in most recipes.
This salad's diverse grains complement one another quite nicely, although you can make it with any combination you prefer. To save time, boil both types of quinoa in one pot, the semi-pearl farro and pearl barley in another, and the purple barley in a third.
