And how ingenious! What more humble or beautiful way to use up leftovers than tossed with a simple grain, a delicate dressing. A change from a lettuce salad, a far cry from a soggy sandwich. A solid, stick-to-your-ribs celebration of dinner the night before. Yes, a thousand times, YES!
Brussels sprouts, garlic roasted sweet potatoes, chewy bits of braised beef. Cooked wheatberries. A gentle squeeze of lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil. Salt and pepper. Behold this salad! Nutritionally sound, frugal, satisfying. This will be excellent.
You win this round, salad.
