  • Thank you for this vegan friendly recipe…it looks delicious!

  • Ditto, the first comment! It looks delicious. Adding it to my menu tonight.

  • This looks amazing!!! Can’t wait to give it a try!!! I may use my own dressing however.

  • Received a grain new to me – Fonio. Looks like this will be a delightful way to try it out. Thanks Sarah.

    • I wouldn’t try fonio with this, Lucy. I was intrigued when I heard about it so I got some and it was a weird texture, more mushy than chewy. I think Sarah’s going for chewy specifically here. I think quinoa would be a pretty great sub for the red rice. Definitely try the fonio separately. I was, sadly, not a fan.

      • Thoughts on using Farro anyone? I really like that grain, a new one for me

        • @Beth I love farro and think that it would be great with this recipe. Trader Joe’s has a quick cook farro that I use in a salad from Smitten Kitchen.

  • This sounds amazing! And just what I need! Thank you!

  • Yum! Thank you for this non-meat dish – looks good, will taste good and good for the planet, too.

  • Looks scrumptious! How many servings does the recipe make? I’m cooking for one. Does it keep for a few days?

    • Thanks for your questions! Serves 8 as a side, and 4 to 6 as a main. Keeps well for 5 to 6 days.

  • Bet it would be good with cooked edamame beans added–a complete vegan meal.

    • Ooo! Sounds great! Definitely a add!

  • This sounds amazing!!! I cannot wait to try it!!!

  • This sounds great! I love the recipes with my fave foods, mushrooms and greens!

  • Stepped on the scale yesterday and the number was so high, I thought it must be broken. Sadly it isn’t! This salad recipe is not only timely but gorgeous. Can’t wait to try it. Thx Sarah!!

  • Oh yummmm!

  • This was absolutely delicious. Just made a double batch, fed a bunch of friends and now feeding me. Can’t decide whether it’s the dill or the green apple that is the secret ingredient—they both add such sparkle.
