Whole Grain & Veg Salad

This was supposed to by tabbouleh, but it’s not at all. Sorry. Dizzle is off for another trip, and he likes to thwart airport and road restaurants by having food from home. This time the choice was tabbouleh. Hopefully this colorful hearty salad will suffice.

* The 3 yr old LOVES this. 🙂

Ingredients $5.50 (4 Servings)
