Smoked Barley, Beet and Grapefruit Salad
Having a plant-based Thanksgiving doesn't have to mean missing out on a delicious meal. These recipes prove that vegans can eat just as much good food, shown through our seasonal salads, full-bodied sides, a gorgeous main dish, and dainty desserts.
A sweet vinaigrette, earthy beets, and the intense citrus twang of grapefruit balance the robust smoky hit of the grains for a memorable salad. To make sure you're getting the whole-grain version of barley, look for hulled, and skip past pearled.
