Rather than cook the grains on the stove, Ree’s tip is to use microwavable pre-cooked grains, to get this dish on the table in a matter of minutes.



Salad Ingredients:


  1. For the dressing: Add the oil, vinegar, Dijon, honey, oregano and garlic to a mason jar. Pop on the lid and give it a good shake to combine and emulsify. Set aside.
  2. For the salad ingredients: Add the baby kale to a large bowl. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Add 2 tablespoons of the dressing and toss to coat. Transfer to a serving platter. Add the grain blend to the bowl. Top with the roasted peppers, olives, banana peppers and half of the goat cheese. Add half of the remaining dressing, reserving the rest for another time, and toss to combine. Garnish the salad with the remaining goat cheese, then the basil and parsley.

Cook’s Note

The dressing can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
