Favorite summer salads (beyond trad. pasta)

sljones | Jun 4, 2009 05:53 PM

Weather cooperating, looks like our family will spend most of our summer weekends outdoors or running around. I'd love to have an array of summer grain salad recipes that we can carry around in our cooler, and that make the better part of a meal. I'm happy to hear about great pasta salads, but also very interested in other grains and combos.

So what are some of your favorites?

Here are two of our family standbys:

Mediterranean Couscous and Lentil Salad

Quinoa and Black Bean Salad

We also really enjoy a broccoli and rice salad with raisins from "Quick Vegetarian Pleasures."
