WW Recipe of the Day: Healthy Fall Fruit & Grain Salad
Before you get all crazy on Halloween candy, I've got a deliciously healthy and satisfying fall fruit and grain salad for you to consider.
If you don't get around to making it today, I hope you'll put it on your must-try list.
It really is that good 🙂
Crunchy apples, juicy grapes, hearty grains, tangy dried cranberries, sweet chopped dates, and crunchy walnuts tossed with a luscious creamy vanilla-cinnamon yogurt dressing.
All I can say is YUM!! This easy, healthy satisfying salad works equally well for breakfast or lunch. Or as a side dish or snack.
Skinny on Fall Fruit and Grain Salad
This fall fruit and farro salad was a pleasant surprise. I had never considered combining fruit with grains in a salad, but I liked the chewy contrast they provided.
If you can't find farro, I think barley or wheat berries would be a great substitute. Or you could skip the cooked grains altogether if you're not convinced.
