Power Grain Salad

A hearty whole grain salad with a sweet citrus dressing makes this a great year round dish and an easy potluck item

1/2 cup Highwood Crossing Organic Power Grain Cereal, uncooked
1 cup celery, thinly sliced
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup fresh parsley, coarsely chopped

2 tablespoons shallots, minced

1/4 cup Highwood Crossing Organic Cold Pressed Flax Oil
1 tablespoon white wine or apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 orange zest
pinch salt and freshly ground black pepper

Place the power grains in a medium size saucepan and add 1 1/2 cups of cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and let simmer, uncovered for 25 minutes. Let cool.

In a medium sized bowl mix celery, cranberries, raisins, parsley, pumpkin seeds and shallots with the flax oil vinegar, orange juice and orange zest.

Add cooled power grains to the salad and season with salt and pepper.
