I am honored to be a member of the Stonyfield Clean Plate Club. I received product and coupons for writing this post, but all opinions are my own.

The official start of summer is next Saturday, and barbecue season is upon us. Looking for a healthy side dish to bring to your next barbecue? Why not try my recipe for Creamy Greek Pilaf Salad? Its full of flavor and healthier than most “creamy” salads–I used Stonyfield Plain Greek Yogurt to obtain that creamy texture!

I recently received a box of Bob’s Red Mill grains as well as Stonyfield Yogurt coupons to create a salad perfect for summer. I found my self starring at a box of grains I’ve never cooked with–let alone ate. Grains like Amaranth, Bulgur, Farro, Grande Whole Grains Blend, and Sorghum. Ok, I’ve had bulgur, but that’s about it. I went for the whole grains blend because that seemed the most common to me. My goal was to create a pilaf salad fit for a picnic or barbecue.

The Bob’s Red Mill Grande Whole Grains Cereal/Pilaf is a special combination of grains, blending wholesome hard red wheat, nutty long grain brown rice, fiber-rich oats and barley, rye, triticale, plump Kamut® Khorasan wheat, earthy buckwheat and sesame seeds for a little bit of crunchy texture. I had never cooked with it before the challenge, and now I’m hooked. It’s an easy and healthy side dish or even better you can use it as a hearty breakfast cereal!Creamy Greek Pilaf Salad using @stonyfield and @bobsredmill #cleanplateclub #stonyfieldblogger

    I am not sure which would be my favorite, however, I know I’ll be trying your Creamy Greek Pilaf Salad in the near future.I have also made and liked a Farro, Avocado, Cucumber, and Cherry Tomato Salad.

    Just learning about the different grains and how to use them. My family does go for the creamy dressing so the whole grain blend is on the shopping list

    My favorite would have to be the Colorful Quick Quinoa Grecian Salad. It’s so filling and full of flavor.

    One of my absolute favorites is farro, radiccio, beets and feta tossed in red wine vinaigrette

    On the top of my list would have to be toasted barley salad with broccoli. I could eat that everyday!
