    Carrie Ann's Note:

    A wonderful salad with a multitude of flavours and textures. If you don't care for currants, raisins or dried apricots work equally well. I use half currants and half apricots in this recipe if I have them both on hand.

      This recipe made a refreshing and nourishing summer dinner - a great alternative to or addition to meat dishes. The blend of flavors and textures was very pleasing. The best thing was that it was so easy to make using spices, grains and beans on-hand. I added a little vegetable stock to the pot instead of water just to intensify flavors and provide a little more nourishment; otherwise, I followed the recipe just as printed.
