    justcallmetoni's Note:

    I have recently made a concerted effort to introduce more grains into my diet. Both healthful and delicious, this makes a lovely side dish for pork or chicken.

      I made this for ZWT2. Nice combination of flavors and textures. I used mixed dried fruit and sliced almonds. Thanks for sharing.
