The salad is slightly chewy and toothsome, the quinoa pops in your mouth while the red rice lingers a bit with it’s nutty nuances further enhanced by the pistachios. The caramelized onions add a wonderfully mellow flavor while the green onions and arugula add a peppery bite! The piquant flavors of the onion and orange mirror the mango salsa and the buttery cod and macadamias….DIVINE!
If you are looking for a unique summer salad to serve with grilled meats, seafood or vegetables, look no further! This complex salad of whole grains is gorgeous as an accompaniment to summer fare and because it’s best eaten at room temperature, its perfect for picnics and barbecues. The salad is definitely tastier the next day when the flavors really meld.
Enjoy, darlings, and ciao for now! xo
