This Monday I decided to have a little fun with my post. With so many family members dropping in and out, the need to feed them can seem ever ending. I created this hearty salad full of powerhouse veggies sure enough to please all of your guests. Combining wild rice, Farro, squash, kale, walnuts & pumpkin seeds you’ve pretty much got every vitamin covered. Bonus: it’s Vegetarian, Gluten free & Vegan.
