Ancient Grains Salad

Eaten last night at a Quinoa seminar at IE Produce in Takapuna. What a great night we had! A chance to learn and a chance to taste a range of quinoa recipes  including this super healthy salad. The main ingredient was Ceres organics ancient grain fusion (white and black quinoa combined with brown and red rice)
Once cooked these ancient grains were combined with olives, sun dried tomatoes and garden herbs and tossed in a dressing.
