Directions

  1. Using the package directions as a guide, slightly overcook InHarvest Black Pearl Medley (to avoid toughening of the grains caused by the acid in the dressing).
  2. Lay the cooked Black Pearl Medley out on a sheet pan. Reserve the sheet pan in a walk-in or cooler until the grain is chilled.
  3. Blanch the broccoli in boiling water, or steam just until the florets are crisp- tender. Plunge the florets into ice water. Drain well.
  4. To make the dressing, combine the soy sauce, orange juice, sesame oil and ginger.
  5. In a large bowl, combine the chilled Black Pearl Medley, broccoli florets, carrot slices, scallion and cilantro. Mix all ingredients well.
  6. Add the vinaigrette to the grain salad and mix well again. Reserve chilled until service.

Chef Tip

The acid in the dressing will cause the grains to toughen. Slightly overcooking the Black Pearl Medley prevents this from happening.
