Colorful accents of carrots, zucchini, red onion, and fresh parsley add eye appeal to this delightful combination of whole grains, topped with a tasty omega-3-rich dressing. Test kitchen tip: If you have a toaster oven, it's an easy way to roast nuts. Spread pieces on foil and set toaster to low.
- In a large salad bowl, toss together cooked grains with zucchini, carrots, olives, red onion, parsley, and raisins.
- In a small skillet on medium heat, dry-toast walnuts, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Place toasted walnuts on a cutting board and cover with waxed paper. Crush walnuts with a mallet or the smooth side of a meat tenderizer.
- In a small bowl, whisk together remaining dressing ingredients. Stir in crushed walnuts until smooth. Pour dressing over grain-vegetable mixture and toss until well coated. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve.
