      This is an OUTSTANDING FLAVORFUL HEALTHY salad! This would be WONDERFUL at any HOLIDAY table! Perfect for a VEGAN CHRISTMAS! I made a half recipe with Black Japonica for the wild rice and cooked whole buckwheat groats separate for the wheat berries. I used 1 (14oz) can of vegetable broth for the brown rice and Japonica. For the dressing I used white wine vinegar, olive oil and fresh sage. I toasted pecans in a non-stick skillet. I also used sea salt and course ground pepper. I LOVED the whole grains and sweet/tart fruits and the sage...I just loooove sage! Thank you so much for this KEEPER recipe! Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.

      I substituted barley for the brown rice and omitted the apricots. I used balsamic vinegar which we prefer. This served 2 adults and 2 young kids a side dish for dinner. I'll enjoy this as a meatless meal. Lots of room for variations with the grains, fruits, vinegar, oil and seasoning. I'll be proud to bring this to a party and It'll be a regular in our menu.

      This dish is fantastic and healthy. I was a little worried about the amount of dried fruit in this dish, thought it would be too sweet to be a side dish. But I made it as directed- wanted to give it a try. It was wonderful. The only change to this recipe we made was with the vinegar. We couldn't find any sherry wine vinegar at the local market, so I used a combination of red wine vinegar and raspberry vinegar. It tasted great. Thank you for posting this. I plan on making it again just like this and also want to try some variations with flavors now. This makes a lot of salad and I may try half the amount next time.
