This refreshing and modern take on a classic salad can be assembled in advance for a make-ahead dinner or grab-and-go lunch. Make it meatless by simply swapping the chicken for cubed Cheddar or Swiss cheese.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pkg (250 g) GEOVITA Wheat, Barley & Oat Blend
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) sodium-reduced chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 cups (500 mL) cubed, cooked chicken breast
  • 1 each small apple and celery stalk, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) each halved grapes and walnut or pecan halves
  • 1 cup (250 mL) broccoli sprouts or pea shoots (optional)

Honey-Yogurt Dressing

  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) each plain yogurt and mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) each honey and Dijon mustard

DIRECTIONS

  1. Bring broth to a boil in a medium saucepan set over high heat. Add Geovita blend, reduce heat to low and stir. Cook, covered, for 10 minutes or until broth is absorbed. Spread grains out on a plate to cool slightly.
  2. Divide grains between 4 serving bowls. Arrange an equal portion of chicken, apple, celery, grapes and walnuts over grains. Garnish with sprouts (if using).
  3. Honey-Yogurt Dressing: Blend yogurt with mayonnaise, lemon juice, honey and mustard until well-combined. Drizzle over grain bowls to serve.

Tip: Use fat free Greek yogurt and light mayonnaise in the dressing to reduce total fat and calories.
