Green Grain Salad with Jalapeño Vinaigrette

This grain salad is super versatile. You can use any grain you have, and it can be served warm or at room temperature. I love the earthiness of the herbs and the crunch from the pepitas and pistachios. It is a great accompaniment to chicken or fish. The jalapeño vinaigrette can me made less spicy by removing the ribs and seeds of the chile before blending. Getting your greens in has never been so easy.
